Students interested in widening their international horizons now have a quick and easy way to narrow their search for a study abroad program. The Office of International Affairs launched a new, online search engine that enables students to search through more than 100 programs to find a study abroad program that best meets their academic goals. The search tool can be found at oia.osu.edu/programs/search-programs.
“With the number of programs available, and all of the variables that come with studying abroad, we wanted to make it easier for students to sift through the information,” said Grace Johnson, Director of Study Abroad. “The search engine helps students quickly identify programs that match their specific criteria.”
Students can search by multiple fields to find programs related to a subject they are interested in studying, a particular country they want to explore, the length of time they want to study abroad and the time of year that works best for their schedule. Once the results of potential programs are displayed on the web page, students can click on the program name to find additional details about the program including dates, costs, eligibility, application deadlines and study abroad coordinator contact information.
When beginning a search, students should consider the following:
After students have spent some time searching through the variety of programs, they can attend a Getting Started session to learn more about narrowing their choices, as well as other practical information about finances, the application process and additional resources. Getting Started schedules are available at oia.osu.edu.
