WHY Study Abroad?

Study off-campus and abroad helps to develop skills—critical, reflective, cross-cultural and intrapersonal—that are integral to a liberal arts education. Your new knowledge and skills from your time studying off-campus are also attractive to prospective employers and grad schools. Set yourself apart by taking advantage of the opportunity to study off-campus and abroad!

So, you already know the "WHY" - how about the:

WHAT: What courses do I want to study? What are the eligibility requirements for the program(s) I like? What languages are the courses taught in? What is the total cost of the program, air ticket, housing, etc?

WHERE: Which country is best for me? Which city do I want to live in? Where will I live (residence hall, apartment, homestay)?

WHEN: Which term do I want to be off-campus? Can I study off-campus multiple times? When are the relevant deadlines?

HOW: How much do I need to save? How much do I need for personal expenses? How do I make sure the credits transfer to Rhodes? How do I select the housing that I want? How do I apply for scholarships? How do I find the program that fits me best?

Let's find the answers to these questions! Come to an ADVISING SESSION:

  • Fall 17 coming soon!

After attending an Advising Session, you can make one-on-one appointments with your Study Abroad Advisor.

Is There Anyone I can Talk To Who's Studied Abroad Already?

Why, yes!  The Rhodes Global Diplomats (RGD) team is a group of past study abroad students at Rhodes.  RGDs love to meet with Rhodes students interested in studying abroad to offer information and advice on living and taking courses away from Rhodes. The RGD team has an incredible wealth of knowledge about what it is like to be a study abroad student. Contact the Study Abroad Associate, Meaghan Waff to get in touch with your RGDs.
