The University of New Mexico Office of International Programs and Studies holds its bi-annual Study Abroad Fair on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union Building Atrium.

The fair provides UNM students with a great opportunity to learn more about exchange programs. Representatives from partner exchange organizations and students who have studied abroad in the past will be on hand to answer questions.

Studying abroad is a great opportunity for students to gain international and life experience, acquire intercultural communication skills, make friends and professional contacts, perfect foreign language skills and more.

There are study abroad opportunities in almost every region of the world ranging in length from a few days to a full academic year. There is a study abroad program for each student's interests, academic program, career goals, budget, language skills and comfort level.

For more information and an interactive map of regions and universities offering study abroad opportunities, visit Office of International Programs and Studies or call (505) 277-4032.
