I will graduate on time!

I figured out how many 300+ level classes I needed to take in order to graduate on time, and tried to make that work. There were some challenges because I studied abroad during my last semester of college. I surmounted these challenges by working with advisors and submitting a proposal to a committee, and proving the worth and value of my studying abroad.

Graduating Senior, South Africa

I learned Spanish!

I learned a new language and culture, which I wouldn’t have learned without living in Spain with a host mom. It taught me about patience and working hard to learn something completely new!

I got funding!

The experience was well worth it and there were plenty of resources to help with the cost! UAlbany offers a generous amount of scholarships that all students can access.  I made my study abroad experience a financial reality by speaking directly with the Office of Financial Aid and applying to as many scholarships I could find. Many people think it will cost a fortune but, if you look hard enough, you can even find programs that cost LESS than stay on campus!

Sophomore, China

I'm valuable to my employer!

I am a global citizen; I feel like I can understand things on an international scale since I went abroad. Future employers will love that!

UAlbany graduate, Germany

My courses counted!

I wanted to witness and experience what I was learning in my classroom. I fit study abroad into my academic plan by thinking ahead, talking to my advisors, and by going to a school that allowed me to take classes that counted towards my degree requirements.
