Selecting a Program

Left Nav

With so many options, how do you know which one is right for you? Start by thinking about what you want to get out of your experiences abroad. Think about the following questions.

  • What would you like to study in a new context?
  • What are your goals (academic, personal, and/or professional), and how can going abroad help you work toward those goals?
  • What culture(s) are you interested in learning more about?


Other things to take into consideration are:


  • Are there certain classes you need to take while abroad?
  • What major, minor, and/or foundations requirements do you have left to complete?
  • Is there something you’d like to study, but can’t here at Berry?


  • Explore study abroad scholarship options.
  • While a semester program may have a higher total cost, it may be more cost effective than going for on a short program, especially since all financial aid can be applied to semester programs.
  • If you have a strict budget, consider locations with lower costs of living and lower airfare.

 Push your Comfort Zone

  • Nationally, the UK, Spain, and Italy are the most popular study abroad destinations. Try researching options in multiple areas of the world. You may discover the perfect program in a location you had not considered before.
