International Study Programs Fair at BYU Sept. 15

All Brigham Young University field study, study abroad, international internship and direct enrollment programs will be featured at the International Study Programs Fair on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Marigold Mall just east of the Herald R. Clark Building.

Participants will enjoy food, sign up for prizes and listen to the BYU International Folk Music Ensemble, all while exploring academic study options abroad.

Many students know they want to study internationally at some point during college, but have no idea where to go or what to do while abroad. “For most students, their international experience leads to greater graduate school or career potential,” said T. Lynn Elliott, director of International Study Programs.

The fair is an excellent opportunity for students to meet faculty directors from each program, learn what courses are offered in which countries, and discover how to prepare for their international opportunity, said Elliott.

Students are encouraged to plan early to incorporate an international experience into their academic goals. Many programs are filled a year or more in advance of departure.

Student facilitators who have previously participated in one or more of the programs will answer questions and assist students through the application process in Student Services at 101 HRCB. Financial aid options are available for qualifying students.

ISP is responsible for managing all credit-bearing international study for BYU. Administrative offices are housed in 204 HRCB, where program coordinators support colleges and departments with the logistics and management of their academic programs abroad. College deans and department chairs interested in adding international study to their academic programs are encouraged to contact Elliott at (801) 422-6244.

Students can expand their worlds with an academic experience abroad. Apply now online at kennedy.byu.edu/isp.
