Education Abroad Fair

Fall 2017 Education Abroad Fair
Fairfield Way, Storrs Campus (Rain location: Student Union Ballroom)
Friday, September 15, 2017
11am-2pm

Want to learn more about Education Abroad opportunities available to UConn students? Come to the Education Abroad Fair! We have a fair every fall and every spring – this is a great chance to learn more about the many programs we offer.

This event is designed to help students figure out the logistics of going abroad. The fair has over 50 tables featuring Faculty-Led programs, Exchange programs, and 3rd Party program providers. Students who have studied abroad on various programs are available to share their experiences. Faculty leading programs are available to help answer questions. Also represented are Financial Aid, the School of Business, and many more UConn offices. The Education Abroad office staff are all on hand to help direct students and help answer questions as well.  

For Students:  How to Get the Most out of the Fair

Join over 1000 students checking out the available opportunities we offer. This is a one-stop-shop to learn more about Education Abroad. Students do not need to register to attend. Students should aim to gather as much information as possible, about as many programs as possible to begin to narrow down what program is the best fit. For more information, download our information sheet on getting the most out of the Education Abroad Fair!
