At the University of Kentucky, our goal is for students to identify the best education abroad opportunity based on their academic and career goals. Students are encouraged to focus on the “what” and not the “where.” Common questions students should consider are, “what types of courses would I like to take while abroad?”, “what type of skills do I want to gain while abroad?” and “what do I want to do while abroad – study, teach, intern, research?” With over 400 approved opportunities to choose from, putting the academic elements first allows students to narrow down their choices before considering secondary program characteristics like geographic location, length of time abroad, etc.

UK Education Abroad employs a number of professional staff as well as student staff through the Education Abroad Peer Ambassador internship program to assist students throughout the entire process, from program selection to pre-departure to program return. Consider inviting an EA Peer Ambassador to your class or organization meeting or use the EA 101 video below to promote education abroad to your students.
