Student Identities Abroad

Choosing to take the leap to study abroad, whether on a short-term FLEAP or for a whole semester, is an exciting decision!

It’s also an important one, and we know that it requires a lot of research. As you prepare to study abroad, you should explore how your identity might impact your study abroad experience. In this section, you will find specific information to consider as an underrepresented study abroad student, as well as links to other relevant resources. We encourage you to learn as much as possible about your host country before departure, and we hope that you will utilize our office as a resource to help address any concerns you may have.
