Why Study Abroad

Step outside the classroom into another country, culture and perhaps even a life-changing experience. Students who study abroad immerse themselves in different cultures and languages, as well as gain global perspectives, friends and unforgettable experiences. With partnerships at over 100 universities, in over 50 countries, and many USU faculty-led programs, students can go just about anywhere and study anything, regardless of language skills.
