Continuing Your International Experience

Discover new academic opportunities. You may have found an academic, career and/or service learning direction from this experience that will make you better able to define your area of study, research or graduate school opportunities. Don’t forget that many graduate school opportunities abroad are affordable and unique ways to continue your academic career.

Get involved at USU. Now that you have returned, what better way to relive some of your experiences than to be a buddy for an incoming international exchange student, volunteer at the study abroad fair each semester, participate in USU's international activities and events, live in Global Village, or join a language or international studies club. Share your pictures, your enthusiasm and your memories with others!

Enter a photo in the Study Abroad Photo Contest held in November during International Education week. You might be a winner, and it's a great way to relive your adventures and share them with your fellow Aggies!

Find a scholarship/internship abroad. Having been abroad, you may have an edge in getting a competitive paid internship abroad or a Fulbright Scholarship. With an undergraduate degree and an international study abroad experience already, consider a Fulbright opportunity abroad to teach English, do research or undertake a Masters or Phd program abroad.

Enhance your resume and explore international careers. On your resume, you may want to highlight some of the skills you developed while on a study abroad. Some skills that you might have developed abroad include: language skills, academic/research skills, personal maturity, responsibility and self-confidence, flexibility, greater cultural awareness and tolerance for cultural differences. USU Study Abroad and USU Career Services may help you develop a resume that incorporates some of the skills you developed, as well as provide resources for other work opportunities.
