Virtual Study Abroad Fair


VSAF Banner

    

WKU Global Learning & International Affairs is excited to co-sponsor a Kentucky-wide Virtual Study Abroad Fair! While physically travelling to study abroad may seem unreachable in the present, there are many virtual options available. Planning to travel on a study abroad program can never begin too early. During the week of February 1-5, students can learn about several programs that will take them far beyond The Hill—programs with varying lengths, locations, modalities, and fields of study inside and outside the U.S. By tuning-in for specialized sessions featuring WKU study abroad partners and WKU’s support services, students can scope out options and resources, as well as register for scholarships and prizes!
