Austin College's Center for Global Learning facilitates Semester Abroad Studies and JanTerms. If a student would like to spend a semester abroad with Austin College, the he/she should stop by our office (Wright Campus Center #204) to begin the process. It is extremely important to go through the process in the office, otherwise the College will be unable to send the student's financial aid to the program and the student will need to withdraw from Austin College during their semester or year abroad. The Center's goal is to make each student's experience abroad a meaningful and engaging experience. In order for that to happen, students are required to go through the process in place at the Center.
We look forward to working with you and please read about other student's reviews and experiences at the different programs and locations that can be found at Abroad101.
Important Dates and Deadlines
As of right now, there are no firm deadlines in place for you to complete the Abroad101 Survey. However, before we can post your transcript from your sojourn abroad, you must complete the Abroad101 Survey and interview with the director (Truett Cates).
Thank you very much for your help and cooperation with this. We look forward to hearing about your time and experiences abroad!
Experiencing The Irish Hospitality, Countryside And Drink
IFSA: Cork - University College Cork
"Typical to the stereotype, I learned how to handle my drink. It was a good environment for me, as an international student, but the drinking culture for late teens and young adults is full of peer pressure.
Home-grown in Texas, in a land-locked area, it was beautiful to see the sea as often as I did. It was also stunning to se..."
Central College Abroad: Study Abroad in Vienna, Austria
"I gained more self confidence and bettered my German. It was most definitely worthwhile. I loved the country and I loved the people. At the end of it my Austrian roommate was begging me not to leave. It was a life changing experience. "
Pack Light, Travel Everywhere.
IES Abroad: Nagoya Direct Enrollment - Nanzan University
"The experiences I had through the IES field trips and my own personal travels in Japan were by far the best thing about my time in Japan. I got to see historical sites and the natural beauty of the country. Kyoto was the best. If you can go to Kyoto, go. Go right now.
Also, my language skills at the end of the program were..."
How A Town So Small Made The World So Big
Arcadia: Toledo - Fundación Ortega-Marañón
"I had never been out of the country before this experience. I'd never even been out of state without my parents. I attend college an hour and a half from home. I gained so much confidence in my ability to exist independently, separated from everyone and everything that I know. When I first got there, I could not speak to the..."
Best Time Of My Life
Spanish Studies Abroad: Seville - Semester, Year or Summer in Seville
"I can speak spanish a lot better and easier, I made a lot of new friends because I went without knowing anyone. It forced me to make new friends. Also, living with a host family was great because I got to eat the cultural foods and learn about a spanish family from the inside and learn about how they carry on their day. "
CIEE: Tokyo - Arts and Sciences
"Language skills, a stronger sense of independence, and that trains are the best thing in the world.
I believe it was very worthwhile. I got to experience many things, such as concerts and conventions, that I would not have otherwise been able to experience."
