“The benefits of education abroad are significant, diverse, and lifelong. Students commonly tell us that their time away was the most important in their UVA career. These students bring a broadened perspective and knowledge base to key issues and questions in their fields of study. They also demonstrate greater understanding of cultural differences, are more adaptable, and have greater coping skills and self-knowledge than their peers who didn’t study abroad.
Get the most out of your UVA education, make time to study abroad.”
