Here are the key components for researching study abroad opportunities for the ISE students.
Visit the Global Education Website at www.globaleducation.vt.edu
A quick overview of the different programs and a “Students” section will help you explore your options and get a better feel for how each type of program can help you meet your specific study abroad goals.
Visit the Global Education Office
The Global Education office is located at the corner of Price’s Fork and Tom’s Creek roads. Stop by during regular office hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or make an appointment by calling (540) 231-5888, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or signing up on their website.
Apply for your program online
Deadlines vary according to program type but generally, you’ll submit an application the semester before your program begins. Application Deadlines for specific programs can be found on the Global Education website.
Finance your study abroad trip
If you plan to use financial aid and scholarships to fund your study abroad experience, contact a counselor in the Financial Aid and Scholarships office. Ms. Van Curen can provide information on departmental scholarships for study abroad.
Attend a mandatory pre-departure orientation conducted through the Global Education office. The Orientation is conducted at the end of each fall and spring semester and lasts approximately 2 hours.
