As you begin exploring your options for a program abroad, we encourage you to spend time identifying your personal and academic goals for the experience. With some research, self-reflection and goal definition, you can expect to find the program that best fits your needs. It is also important to discuss your plans to go abroad with your faculty or collegiate advisor. They will be able to provide insight into how to best structure your experience at TU to make the most of your study abroad experiences.
Researching Study Abroad Options
The first step towards studying abroad will be to meet with one of the CGE Peer Advisors. Taking walk-in appointments during regular business hours, these returned study abroad students will assist you in exploring program options and providing you information about the application process.
You should discuss your desire to study abroad with your college’s academic adviser early in the process. He or she can assist you in determining what courses abroad will be most appropriate according to your specific and individualized degree requirements.
All coursework, including internships, research or independent study that you plan to take abroad must be approved by your college as part of the study abroad application process. Changes to courses after arrival abroad also require college approval to ensure appropriate TU credit can be awarded.
