Looking to learn more about study abroad at ASU? Well, you’re in luck. Study Abroad Week is coming to a computer near you!

With over 300 programs ranging from one week to a year offered in 65 different countries, on every continent in the world, students are sure to find the right study abroad program to meet their personal, professional and academic goals. Even though international travel may be on hold for a bit, now is the time for students to get a head start on planning, so they’re ready to jump on that plane when it's safe to do so. 

Study Abroad Week is the ASU Study Abroad Office’s inaugural large-scale, virtual event. The week is geared toward helping Sun Devils explore their study abroad options for spring 2021 and beyond.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about various programs that are offered at ASU, explore faculty-directed programs while talking to the faculty who lead them, meet Study Abroad Office staff and attend information sessions ranging from financial aid and scholarship planning to specific program sessions. 

A virtual event makes attending Study Abroad Week a great option for students on all campuses, students taking classes remotely, ASU Online students and even Sun Devil parents and families to learn more about study abroad. ASU staff and academic advisers are also invited to get a taste of study abroad program options and learn how they can best support their students in their journeys abroad.

Held from Oct. 26 to 29, this four-day event is sure to get your travel senses tingling. With sessions offered at various times throughout the week, on top of a virtual expo from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, students should come ready to learn and explore study abroad program options that allow them to earn ASU credit while expanding their global perspectives. Students are encouraged to stop in for a few minutes between classes or stay on for the entire event to get their questions answered about how to get started on planning their study abroad.

Students are encouraged to invite their families to come along and start the conversation about study abroad by attending the Parents and Families: Study Abroad and Your Student information session offered on both Monday and Thursday. Be sure to take a look at the full schedule to see which sessions spark your interest and register to join in on the fun.
