From studying alternative energy sources at geothermal and hydroelectric power stations in Iceland to observing elephant populations in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park, Terps every semester scatter across the world to take in new cultures and new ideas. After more than two years of COVID-related disruption, studying abroad is back in full force, offering hundreds of opportunities for UMD students to get out of their shells (and College Park).
Today, the Education Abroad office is hosting its first Study Abroad Fair since 2020, giving Terps the chance to explore over 250 programs in more than 55 countries. Faculty program leaders, representatives from partner programs, study abroad alums and Education Abroad advisors will welcome students to the Stamp Student Union’s Grand Ballroom to let them know about the adventures that might await them.
Education Abroad staffers at the event hope to clear up common misconceptions about studying abroad. Think it’s too expensive? In fact, it can be less costly than a semester on campus. Worried it won’t work for your major? All majors have study abroad possibilities. Concerned about your carbon footprint? UMD offsets 100% of carbon emissions from student travel.
Before you hit up the fair, take a look at more stats about studying abroad at UMD.
