Alas, as with any trip abroad, whether for pleasure, business or study, there are processes and paperwork. Here’s our brief checklist of how to apply for study abroad:
- The first thing to do is to visit the Study Abroad Office in the Center for Engaged Teaching in Learning – we’re in the Greenwell Library – just enter the Library and turn left! We can help you find a program that suits you or just help you get your documents.
- If you’re REALLY interested, we’ll provide the Study Abroad packet that includes just about everything you need for Wesleyan paperwork!
- Talk with your academic advisor! This is crucial to ensure that studying abroad will work for your major/minor and won’t set you back. Your advisor will help you select equivalent courses that transfer smoothly as well as help you determine the best study term.
- Choose your study program. In the Study Abroad Office, we have brochures and catalogs from third-party organizations and schools or we can research and find you a program, if none of these have what you’re looking for.
- Meet with Financial Aid to determine if or how much aid can transfer to your study abroad program. This information also can determine your eligibility for Wesleyan scholarships/grants for Study Abroad.
- Apply to your selected program. If you want to study with an external (to KWC) school or organization. Note that many organizations offer grants to study on their programs.
- Complete all Wesleyan paperwork and return the packet to the Study Abroad Office. We will review and pass along to appropriate offices. Remember, ALL paperwork comes here.
- Apply for external scholarships and grants, if applicable. Check with us for opportunities.
- Come to the Study Abroad Office for help on passports, insurance, airfare, etc.
- Get ready, set, go!
