Study Abroad Outreach
Faculty, advisors, and staff members can be highly influential as a student considers studying abroad as part of their overall educational path. Faculty and staff play a vital role in encouraging students to study abroad and in helping them to prepare for the experience. Many students have never thought about study abroad or do not realize that they can fit an international program into their degree plans. Here are some ways to promote study abroad at Washington University:
Encourage Students to Consider Study Abroad
The first step is making students aware of international opportunities. Encourage students to start planning for study abroad as early as freshman year. Mention studying abroad during individual meetings or during class. Share your own international experience by engaging students in discussions of global issues that relate to your curriculum.
