Start Your Journey
Knowing where to begin can be challenging, so we have laid out several steps to help get you started.
Attend a First Steps Session Learn & talk with past students
Our First Steps Information Sessions are a great place to start if you have questions about Education Abroad, what to think about when considering a program, how to select a program, cost, financial aid and scholarships, etc. UK EA encourages all students starting this process to attend one of these sessions!
Brainstorm Your Goals Don't forget it's not all about the Insta.#study
Participating in an education abroad program is exciting, but don't spend so much time thinking about epic Instagram captions that you forget to set goals for yourself. You should start brainstorming your goals before you choose a program, but this process should also be on-going and requires regular reflection.
Find Your Program MAPS & External Programs
UK Education Abroad & Exchanges (UK EA) works with colleges and departments on campus to help students select programs which contribute toward their degree. Please visit the UK EA Advising Center in 315 Bradley Hall for additional resources and and assistance in finding a program.
Meet your UK EA Advisor EA Advisors advise by college.
Once you have attended a First Steps Session, met with an EAPA and researched Financial Aid and Scholarships opportunities, you can make an appointment with your UK EA Advisor if you still have additional questions. They advise by college, so follow the link below to find out who your advisor will be!
