Fort Hays State University Study Abroad held informative sessions throughout campus last week. The “Expo Week” helped give students an opportunity to learn more about the study abroad programs offered by FHSU and see the possibilities for them. FHSU offers numerous programs overseas, including programs in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and the Pacific.
“Students at FHSU have many program options at FHSU,” Study Abroad Coordinator, Stacey Lang said. “The Study Abroad office offers advising sessions every week for students to learn more about how to get the process started.”
Students are encouraged to inquire and learn more about studying abroad.
FHSU partners with Academic Programs International to provide students with a wide variety of options when studying abroad. Almost any degree program can be fitted to study abroad, without disrupting your path to graduate. Programs range from just a few weeks to an entire semester abroad. Costs are comparable to tuition in the United States, so students don’t need to break the bank. During the events held last week, students were able to compare programs for their major and compare costs.
Lang also encourages students to participate in these programs because of the perspective it brings.
“Our National Student Exchange program and our international direct enroll programs can give students a wonderful opportunity to learn about themselves and the world we live in,” Lang said. “I have seen students be completely transformed by their experiences.”
She emphasized the importance of experiencing new people and cultures. Study Abroad allows students to make memories and form new opinions that will last a lifetime.
“From trying new foods and meeting new people, to learning about the daily lives and cultures of people around the world, to learning from instructors from different countries, study abroad will leave a long-lasting impact on your personal life and professional career,” Lang said.
If students are interested in studying abroad, they should contact the Study Abroad office in Sheridan Hall 204 at 785-628-4176 or email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an advising appointment and start the process.
