Carnegie Mellon students and alumni report that studying abroad was one of the most valuable experiences of their lives. It is a time of growth and change in many areas: academically, professionally, personally, and inter-culturally. Students report that studying abroad provided them with increased problem solving skills, better foreign language abilities, new professional contacts, more independence, an enhanced awareness and appreciation of their home culture, and a stronger interest in other cultures.
How We Can Help
The Staff of the Office of International Education at Carnegie Mellon offers students many resources for getting started with study abroad. Our website and our Study Abroad Library are great places to start. We also offer Information Sessions, Individual Advising Appointments,and an E-Peer Advisory. Students should also consider attending our annual Study Abroad Fair or visiting with Study Abroad Program Providers when they visit throughout the year. We also recommend that students communicate with their academic department and attend departmental information sessions on studying abroad if available.
