The Uni­ver­sity of New Mex­ico Global Education Office (GEO) holds its Study Abroad Fair on Friday, Jan. 25 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, where to find scholarships, how to transfer credits and more. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from part­ner exchange orga­ni­za­tions and stu­dents who have stud­ied abroad will be on hand to share their experiences and 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.
