Steps to Studying Abroad

  1. Visit the Office of Career Services as soon as possible (freshman year is not too soon to start your search) and speak with the advisor about program options and general William Woods University policies regarding study abroad. Pick up site-specific program information.

  2. Review these materials carefully, keeping in mind your major, language abilities, and cultural interests.
