Watch for more information on future UW-Sheboygan Study Abroad tours!
Why study abroad?
Studying and living in a different country and culture can offer an educational experience beyond anything you've known before! It allows you the opportunity to challenge yourself and your abilities to adapt and learn. You will view the world through a new perspective, perhaps causing you to question some of what you held true before. You may find that you learn as much about your own country while studying abroad as you do about your host country.
You can build or increase your fluency in a foreign language through some study abroad experiences and you can complete degree credits in general studies, pre-requisites for your major or elective areas. And, besides the personal benefits, the experience can add dramatic value to your resume for future employers or schools.
What programs does UW-Sheboygan offer?
UW Colleges study abroad travel opportunities tend to be one to three weeks in duration and usually occur between semesters, during Spring Break or during summer. They are often preceded by a campus-based or asynchronous course of instruction. UW-Sheboygan students may typically earn anywhere from zero to three degree credits for a course.
Study abroad courses are intensive learning experiences supervised by faculty members. Past UW-Sheboygan Study Abroad program have taken UW-S students and other community participants to Scotland and Wales, Switzerland, Italy/Tuscany, France/Paris and many other exotic and history-filled destinations.
As a student, can I afford to study abroad?
Financial aid and scholarships are available for many study abroad programs. Students who have been accepted and approved for financial aid for the academic year in which the study abroad occurs may wish to have their aid re-evaluated based on the costs of study abroad. Partial scholarships may be available for students who demonstrate financial need according to FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) guidelines.
