Steps for study abroad:
- Plan. The sooner you start planning the better.
This will give you time to talk with your advisor and think about the
classes you will need to take while abroad, apply for scholarships, and
let your family know you are going! Staff in the
study abroad office are happy to help you with the process.
Apply for a study abroad program. You will need to
apply directly to the program and also submit the SMU paperwork.
There are opportunities to spend a few weeks, a semester, academic
year, or summer break abroad through one of many approved
Saint Martin's study abroad program.
Discover the experience of study abroad. Once
everything is in place you can hop a plane and attend the university
you have selected. You will go to class, make new friends, and learn
more than you thought imaginable. Should you need a helping hand
along the way, all of our programs have friendly staff waiting to
help you in the country you choose.
Return and share. After your time abroad, your
credits will transfer back to your Saint Martin's transcript. You
may also have a newfound perspective in classes, insight to share
with those around you, an amazing addition to your resume and some
great stories to share!
