You can do a lot in just a few weeks overseas; help a developing community, study your favourite subject at a partner university, or take on an internship at an international workplace.

I can honestly say that my study abroad experience was an absolute dream. I travelled to 13 countries and visited over 23 cities. During that time I grew in ways I didn't think possible.
