UI Study Abroad Fair Features New Opportunities for Students Sept. 13

September 6th, 2011

The University of Iowa Office for Study Abroad will hold its annual study abroad fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, on the second floor of the University Capitol Centre. All students are invited to attend to learn about international education opportunities.

Over 100 program representatives will be in attendance, including representatives from external institutions in Israel, Australia and Italy. Study Abroad staff, along with peer assistants and program directors, will be available to answer questions, and student returnees will share their study abroad experiences. Students can visit the financial aid table to speak with advisers about scholarships and other available funding for international study.

This year’s fair will also feature opportunities to work, intern and volunteer abroad, a new area of emphasis within the Study Abroad office.

The UI’s goal is for 30 percent of all undergraduates to have a study abroad experience. Last year, one in every five UI undergraduate students studied abroad.

The Office for Study Abroad is part of UI International Programs. This event is free and open to the public.
