You will see programs listed by city, country, their type and their academic area of study. Included in Abroad101 are volunteer programs, intensive language programs and internships, most are credit bearing. Before you make your final choice double check the credit options with you home university advisor.

We encourage you to use the reviews not just to compare programs, but also to gain a better understanding of what to expect. Then, when you return, we suggest that you submit your story by leaving a review to showcase your experience, your talents, and your expanded perspectives. Share that with the world and use your study abroad review as a stepping-stone in your career, as well as a point of pride to show all that you have "the Study Abroad Advantage."
