Study Abroad offers you an exceptional opportunity to not only see the world, but also to live in another country. Learn about the country you're visiting, and find your existing opinions challenged by new surroundings.
Study abroad opportunities offer an opportunity to experience new things like trying different foods and fashions. Studying abroad uncovers new places to walk and bike and hike. Challenge yourself to put your toes in as many oceans as you encounter or visit a famous body of water like the Dead Sea.
Care to climb? Visit the mountains in New Zealand. Want to swim? Snorkel in the waters of Australia. Try surfing, skiing, or join a hill walking club. Universities often provide student visitors with club sports or occasionally sponsor trips.
The Office of Experiential Opportunity and Post Graduate Success encourages every student to at least consider studying abroad to fulfill the Rosemont experiential learning component by visiting the office and exploring your possibilities.

"The study abroad opportunity has had a major impact on me as an individual. Studying abroad has expanded my perception of the world around me. It has made me appreciate the smaller things in life. I have learned to take the time to smell the roses and to not race through life. My time in Ireland has allowed me to take a step back and see that there is so much more to this world than what I see on a regular basis.
For this, I would like to say thank you to Rosemont and its School of Graduate and Professional Studies for this opportunity. To those who are considering if they should study abroad; do it. The experience that I gained from taking this opportunity will stay with me for a life time, and I am still seeing the benefits of studying abroad to this day."
Salamanca, Spain Trip - Imran Chaudhry '18
"I learned more Spanish in the first few hours of being there than any class could have ever taught. It was the same for simply being in Salamanca. Everything was different; the air, the sights, the sounds, the world beneath your feet.
What I'm saying is that I learned more about the world, myself and those around me more than any class or book, because you're there. That same land where Cervantes wrote Don Quixote, the land from where Columbus set sail to America, that same land in which Dali painted the limits of the visual experience. I highly recommend that anyone willing or yearning, travel to Salamanca because it's an experience the likes of which you will never forget."
Salamanca, Spain - Varsha Yerram '15
"I had the best month of my life in Salamanca and am so grateful for having experienced this trip. Travel and Education made studying abroad so much easier because everything was organized and I was not only able to learn Spanish at the University, but was also able to travel to amazing places. No time was wasted and I got more than I expected out of this trip.
It was also a unique experience because I traveled to Spain without a group or any friends. I met such fantastic people within just a few days and now we are really good friends. More people should know that you don't have to travel with a group of friends to study abroad. It's completely fine to go by yourself and it's almost guaranteed that you will make great friends and have such an unforgettable experience."
