Congratulations on your decision to learn abroad! Learning abroad is a transformational experience. Research shows that University of Utah students who learn abroad graduate faster, have higher GPAs, and are more engaged on campus and in the community. Learning abroad alumni consistently report that their experiences abroad impacted them academically, personally, and professionally. We are excited that you have taken the steps to begin this journey!

As you consider this opportunity, there are a few details to be aware of. Learning abroad can be overwhelming at times. You’re not alone! The Peer Advisors and Staff Members in the Learning Abroad Office are here to help! Stop by our office (Olpin Union Room 159) any time from 8 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday for walk-in advising. You can also find us online, on Twitter, and on Facebook.
