Is Study Abroad for Me?

Think about what you want to gain from Study Abroad

Do you want to be introduced to a new culture? Try new and daring things?  What kind of climate are you preferring? Do you want to be exposed to a new language or are you more comfortable in an English-speaking country? Do you want a short trip (one week) to something long term (an entire semester)? UMHB offers several options that can suit your wants and needs from a Study Abroad trip.

Make the necessary preparations for a Study Abroad trip

Are you up to date on vaccinations? Are you covered under health insurance? Do you have a current and valid passport? Do you have appropriate apparrel for your destination? Study Abroad trips are not just your typical vacation-- they require a lot of preparation beforehand. One must also be prepared to be far away from home, sometimes with limited contact depending on your location. Make sure you are mentally, physically, financially, and spiritually ready for a Study Abroad trip. Remember to keep an open mind; you will be introduced to new cultures and experiences on your trip. The best way to cope with everything is to simply keep an open mind about it all.
