Our Best Advice on Studying Abroad in College

Studying abroad is one of the most rewarding experiences students can pursue in college. Here's all the advice you could need to make it happen.

Studying abroad is one of those college perks that almost seems too good to be true (right up there with all-you-can-eat ice cream in the dining hall). You'll get to go globe-trotting for college credit, see incredible sites, and learn from amazingly diverse people along the way. It’s also a surprisingly marketable experience when you’re out job hunting after graduation. If you’re lucky enough to have study abroad opportunities available to you in high school or college, take advantage! These articles, blogs, and lists will help you navigate your study abroad program options and show you how to make the most of your time while you're away.

CollegeXpress helped me a lot. I am a Tanzania boy who finished my high school studies in Tanzania. I never knew I could get an opportunity to get a scholarship to study abroad. I am happy that now I know how to find the school to study abroad through CollegeXpress.

CollegeXpress has helped me tremendously in my college search in narrowing down the schools I’m interested in. Using the college search tool, I was able to narrow down my choices to schools that matched what I was looking for. I also used CollegeXpress for their scholarship search, which helped me find scholarships that I meet the requirements of.

CollegeXpress helped me on my journey to get to the school of my first choice by showing me all the options I have. I didn’t know of the College of Southern Nevada until I went on this website, and it helped me look for other choices and compare what colleges would be right for me.

CollegeXpress has tremendously helped me in my search for financial aid opportunities as I enter my college career. It is easy to navigate and quickly narrowed down scholarships that I could apply for. Being awarded the scholarship will greatly help me in my finances regarding books and tuition. Thank you for this opportunity. Without CollegeXpress, it would have been more difficult to apply. I would recommend this site to everyone!
