(Feb. 1, 2019) -- Studying abroad provides UTSA students experiential learning opportunities that have a lasting impact. Roadrunners can learn more about how studying abroad will help develop their skills at the bi-annual UTSA Study Abroad Fair.
Education Abroad will host the Study Abroad Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at Sombrilla Plaza on the UTSA Main Campus.
At the fair, students have direct access to UTSA faculty who lead trips as well as partner providers to answer questions and provide additional information.
“The Study Abroad Fair is the first step students take to learn about how studying abroad can benefit them long-term,” said Bianca Schonberg, Education Abroad director. “Our faculty-led programs and third party programs give students a remarkable learning experience, but the effects of studying abroad last into their careers.”
Studying abroad allows for the development of intra-personal, cognitive and interpersonal skills for the workplace. Students also learn how to be adaptable and flexible while gaining intercultural skills.
Research has shown that students who study abroad have a higher graduation rate and UTSA’s participation in study abroad has grown by nearly 50 percent throughout the last five years.
“When you study in another country, you make new friends and experience things you never even knew existed,” said Lisa Montoya, vice provost for Global Initiatives. “It’s truly mind-blowing. At the same time, students develop skills that take them from classroom to career. You’ll always be glad you studied abroad.”
After the fair, students can attend one of the weekly First Steps meetings, where Education Abroad staff help students pick their program and walk them through the application process.
