STUDY ABROAD Embrace a new culture and discover yourself.


STUDY ABROAD The opportunity to study abroad can be a life-changing experience that allows students to develop skills that will enhance their future employment prospects and enrich their lives. Studying abroad can be a fulfilling part of a well-rounded liberal arts degree, and I am hopeful that all Georgia College students will give serious thought to engaging in the opportunity to study abroad at some point in their university experience. Georgia College President, Dr. Steve Dorman

PROGRAM

TYPES Exchange – Students take courses at a university abroad with local faculty. Students pay tuition to GC and other expenses separately to the appropriate vendors. This is the most affordable study abroad experience as the cost is very similar to that of on-campus study. Most programs are offered for the full semester or academic year, though some options for shorter stays exist. For all exchange programs, contact the Assistant Director of Education Abroad, Liz Havey (liz.havey@gcsu.edu), for more details. GC-Led – Package programs led by GC professors/staff with site-specific learning objectives. Program charges, paid to the International Education Center, typically include accommodations and other in-country expenses. For academic programs, students pay tuition separately to their GC student account. USG Partners – Package programs hosted by the University System of Georgia (USG). Students pay package costs, typically including airfare, accommodations, and other in-country expenses, to the host and their tuition to their GC student account. Direct Billing – Package programs that offer a range of courses through one of GC’s pre-approved study abroad providers. Costs and inclusions vary greatly by program. Providers invoice GC for the package cost, which is posted to the GC student account to maximize student access to financial aid. Internship and Service Learning – Work-based learning experiences abroad. Follow us!

We are a member of the Forum for Education Abroad, which sets the national standard of good practices. The International Education Center implements the Forum’s Standard 8 on safety abroad and risk assessment. For more information, please see our Health and Safety website.
