Are there good Udel study abroad offers?

I’m currently attending the university and I would like to know whether there are any good Udel study abroad options? I haven’t thought about going to other countries previously. However, I’m interested in it now. Suddenly, it turned out that I had no idea what programs my university had and how you should go through the whole process. What are good places to study abroad? What requirements you have to meet to be accepted? What are the cheapest study abroad programs? There are so many questions in my head and all of them require answers. Any help will be appreciated.

The University of Delaware may not be famous for its study abroad programs, but it has many offers for its students. This establishment requires Udel abroad studies to include academic credit. The programs it offers cover the whole academic year and you can choose the duration yourself. There is also an impressive list of countries this university works with. So, you can finally fulfill your wish to visit something exotic. Just make sure education is good there. Though I double it will be poor as Udel chooses its partners carefully.

There is an exchange program that will swap you with another student as well. The competition is usually great but the result is worth your efforts.

Its Institute for Global Studies operates about 100 faculty-led programs. They are mostly short-term but semester-long ones can also happen. You may be confused when browsing the university’s official website and stumble upon various databases. Do not be afraid. Each offer clearly states the possible time periods you can use it for. Here, look at this page http://www1.udel.edu/global/studyabroad/ You can find an address there where you can go get professional advisement from people who have been dealing with these programs for years.

Now, about a good place to study abroad—there are many of them. I think the first two question you have to ask yourself is what exactly you want to study and climate you prefer. Some people cannot live in hot countries, other in overly cold ones. I think the location is an important factor to take into consideration. I would recommend choosing Australia as it is becoming more and more popular among students. The education is good there. In addition, think about those beaches on weekends! This picture is getting better when you think about other aspects of its wonderful nature.

The acceptance process should not take too long. Once you complete an online application, you can check your status on the website as well. Eligibility requirements are following:

  • Full-time education at UD or other institutions
  • At least a 2.0 GPA
  • 18 years old

These are the main requirements that the university has. However, most programs have their own additions and you be requested to complete a language test, undergo medical examination or injections, etc.

Unfortunately, I don’t know what study abroad program is the cheapest because the prices can change every year. If you are worried about money, you can easily apply for scholarships and grants either in Udel or outside of it.

Considering that the person doesn’t know anything about the process, here is a link to the page with a small guide http://www1.udel.edu/global/studyabroad/information/acceptanceprocess.html Created by UD itself, it tells you exactly what to do and when. Pay attention to the “Multiple Applications” paragraph. It is stated that you can apply for more than one program at a time, though you’ll have to prioritize one of them. Does it mean that in case of equal chances, a person who has their priority on a program gets it before the student who has another priority? Unknown. So, you better think about your options very carefully and focus on the thing you like the most. In any case, it won’t hurt to try.

Udel study abroad programs are diverse. You can check them up following the link - http://www1.udel.edu/global/studyabroad/information/programs.html

here is also another guide - http://www1.udel.edu/global/studyabroad/information/apply.html This is actually a page for online applications, but it has many good tips.
