In this global economy, all students should take advantage of the opportunities that studying abroad can offer them — a chance to experience another culture, travel, meet people from all over the world and possibly learn another language. UMass Lowell students have studied in more than 23 countries. Students who wish to study abroad in their sophomore, junior, or senior year should get started as early as the freshman year with planning a semester, year, or summer abroad.
Study Abroad participants often call their experiences "life changing" and that's not an overstatement. You'll have the opportunity to enhance language skills, complete degree requirements, make an impact on a developing community and build your professional network as borders and boundaries dissolve. Study abroad is a stepping stone on the road to your academic and career goals, providing you the knowledge, perspectives and understanding of yourself in relation to the world.
