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 has seriously helped me out a lot, especially when it comes to scholarships and studying for tests like the ACT. I also really love the financial help. It’s a little harder to pay because I live with a family of eight, so any help is appreciated. Thanks for this opportunity!

CollegeXpress really helped me by letting me know the colleges ratings and placements. They gave me accurate information on my colleges tuition rates and acceptance. They even let me know the ration between students and faculty and the diversity of the college. Overall they told me everything I needed and things I didnt even think I needed to know about my college and other colleges I applied for.
