Explore opportunities abroad during annual UGA Education Abroad Open House

ATHENS, Ga.— Students and parents interested in study, intern, research and other experiences abroad are invited to the annual University of Georgia Education Abroad Open House on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Office of International Education.

UGA offers more than 100 programs in more than 60 countries, designed to accommodate students’ academic interests and educational goals. UGA programs range in duration from one to 52 weeks and allow students to earn UGA or transfer credit while studying abroad. The Open House will cover frequently asked questions, UGA’s diverse program offerings, and scholarship and financial aid information. Students can speak with returned students and advisers, and picture themselves abroad in a free photo booth.

More than 2,500 UGA students study abroad each year, and many qualify for scholarships and financial aid from the university, their academic departments, specific programs, and through regional and national scholarship programs. Across the university, more than $600,000 in scholarships is earmarked for students studying abroad each year.

“The open house is an exciting opportunity for students to connect with the Office of International Education early on in their time at UGA. Hearing directly from our faculty leaders and advisors allows students to really understand the offerings of each individual program,” said Kaija Lazda, education abroad advisor.

Register online to attend the Open House: oie.uga.edu/openhouse/.

The Open House is located at 1324 S. Lumpkin Street in Athens, Ga.
