Study Abroad (also called Education Abroad) is very popular at Washington State University. Last year over 700 WSU students participated, and the number is growing! Students can choose from more than 1,400 different programs including exchanges, faculty-led programs, internships, and provider programs. Freshmen typically are not allowed to study abroad, but are encouraged to explore global educational opportunities. International Programs offers daily information sessions called Global Cougs 101, detailing Study Abroad programs in over 80 countries so students can decide whether studying abroad is right for them. Some programs cost about the same as staying on campus in Pullman and students may also cover costs through for Study Abroad scholarships. You and your student can ask questions of WSU Global Learning Ambassadors–WSU students who have participated in a wide-variety of study abroad adventures in over 30 different countries.
