Why Study Abroad at SIUE?
There is a big world beyond Edwardsville. SIUE students already understand the vital importance of an international experience. You may not know that studying abroad improves your employment prospects, helps you be more tolerant, reveals possibilities in your life that you might have never imagined.
- Study Abroad is part of your overall academic experience at SIUE. The courses you take there earn credit for you here. You continue to progress toward graduation with no delay, but with many more options for courses — most taught in English.
- SIUE offers you study abroad experiences to match your comfort level: short-term faculty-led programs with SIUE students and an SIUE professor; or matches with other American students from other U.S. universities.
- Get the facts about costs and financial support. Don’t assume you can’t afford it. Any SIUE student can have a study abroad experience. You may be surprised at how much of the cost of study abroad you are already handling.
- You can study abroad for a semester, a year, or as little as two weeks. While longer is better, any program will help you break through to a more international frame of mind.
So where do you start? Make an appointment with the study abroad advisor, and we can talk about your academic and personal goals, how this experience will fit in with your academic plan, and each of the steps you will need to take.
