Step One: To begin, define your academic and personal objectives as the top priority. While it’s easy to imagine that the best way to begin your program search is to decide on a location, it can be helpful to consider other factors first. If you begin by first determining what you want to gain from the experience, it can help you to define the kind of program that is the best fit for you. Some factors to consider are academics, language, duration, independence, location and career.
Step Two: Attend an Information Session. We hold these sessions every day in our office. This is an important step to the study abroad process in order to learn more about different program options!
Step Three: Research your study abroad options. Use the BGSU program search to research your different options and view program brochures.
Step Four: Meet with an adviser. Once you have narrowed your options to a few programs or locations visit the International Programs and Partnerships office to meet with an Education Abroad Adivser to discuss your selections and ask questions.
