10 Reasons To sTudy abRoad

1. become a flexible self-starter.
   Study abroad tests your assumptions and places you in ambiguous situations outside of
   your expectations, resulting in flexibility and adaptability. This is a trait that all employers
   look for in their employees.

2. Gain an awareness of the larger global context.
   Study abroad exposes you to how other people live and coordinate their work. You will be
   better able to contribute a variety of perspectives if you have interacted with a variety of
   perspectives. This is another trait that all employers look for in their employees.

3. earn credit.
   Use your courses abroad to help you satisfy graduation requirements.

4. Grow personally.
   Aside from what you learn academically, the process of planning for your program, navigating
   your program, problem solving along the way, and unfolding your own adventure builds
   a very satisfying sense of accomplishment and “can-do” feeling.

5. Return home with great stories to tell.
   Your most embarrassing moments abroad become your favorite stories to tell back home.

6. Take creative photos that showcase another culture.
   Submit your photos to the JWU photo contest for prizes and the satisfaction of seeing
   your photo displayed around each campus!

7. eat new foods.
   From the shopping experience itself to the meal in front of you, cultural perceptions
   around food can be surprising. Sample the tastes and discover your new favorite foods.

8. become fluent in another language.
   The majority of our programs are in English, but if you want to study a foreign language,
   there is no better way than to immerse yourself. Soon you will start dreaming in
   another language!

9. Make connections with friends and hosts that last a lifetime.

10. Learn about the u.s.
    Although you may focus on learning more about where you are going, many students
    return with unexpected shifts in their understanding of home and their own culture.



LeTTeR fRoM The sTudy abRoad office

The Study Abroad Office is here to help you plan for studying in another country, to challenge
yourself and try something new. All of our staff have traveled or lived internationally and understand
the excitement, challenge and logistics of travel.

Studying abroad defines that rich environment at the crossroads of experiential education and
global awareness. Participating in well-planned opportunities to experience a different culture is
invaluable to bringing the world to life. Studying and working abroad challenges our assumptions
and routines. It helps us increase our depth of knowledge in a particular academic subject,
expand our self-awareness, develop cultural sensitivity, and walk away with new appreciation of
our global context. The world is alive with diversity of processes, expectations and perspectives.
The best way to learn about these differences is to challenge ourselves to live within them. In the end,
we are better prepared to respond to world events from a global perspective — and consequently
better prepared for a career in the international workforce.

No matter what JWU campus you are currently attending, the Study Abroad Office in Providence
advises all JWU students from all majors. We look forward to working with you.

To help you understand the differences, here is an explanation of the three program models at Johnson & Wales University.

            “At 18 years old I was able to receive a high-class education by traveling Europe through the
            Freshman Sweden Program and meeting lifelong friends. It was a great time in my life; I scheduled
            my classes Monday thru Thursday and backpacked to different countries from Friday to Sunday.
            The classes were mixed with American and Swedish students in very high-tech classrooms.
            I was able to learn so much about both cultures and began a long-standing friendship with
            many on the trip. Once I stepped foot in Sweden freshman year, I knew that I had to go back
            and do it all over again in another European country. In the following years I participated
            in two more study abroad programs [in Spain for a language immersion program and the                                                                spain
            Netherlands for a senior business exchange program]. Studying with international students,
            from all over the world, has helped me in my career. It’s truly a luxury that our parents and
            grandparents never had. The workforce is growing more diverse every day and understanding
            how to work with and respect other people is an important key to becoming a leader. Life will
            continue to pass but those three trips will stay frozen and preserved forever. I would strongly advise
            students to take a break from the everyday grind and head to the Study Abroad Office.”

Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors from all colleges can apply for the
England & Scotland summer program because it offers general studies courses which
fulfill requirements in many majors. In addition, an optional law course was added
specifically for criminal justice majors. Based in Cambridge, England, classes taught by
JWU faculty are delivered in the classrooms of Fitzwilliam College, one of the
31 historic colleges that comprise world-famous Cambridge University. An interdisciplinary
and comparative approach guides students through an exploration of the role of
Great Britain in modern history, socio-cultural issues at work today, and the artistic
and literary contributions that have made the United Kingdom such a force in
global culture. Students in the legal studies class explore international policies created
in response to the threat of global terrorism. Classes are supplemented by excursions
to places of historical, cultural and social importance. From Cambridge streets once
walked by Sir Isaac Newton, to the castles of Scotland and history and excitement of                                                  sweden
London, students are surrounded by the echoes of legend and myth.

         “The Germany Study Abroad Program was honestly the best four weeks of my life.
         To go with such good friends and to leave with even more couldn’t have been
         better. I learned so much from the instructors, the material and the tours. It brought
         everything I was ever taught about wine into perspective. To understand the soil,
         the effort, the methods, and the history of wine-making firsthand is an experience
         no one can take away from you. You listen to instructors about it but never
         really understand the possibilities or the excitement until you reach the destination.
         From Day One you are immersed into the culture, the learning and the fun.”                                                                                                                                                                                      Germany

the culinary arts of Europe. In your second and third years, you have a choice between an internship or study abroad experience.
                  Both help build your skills, your résumé and you! Consider study abroad as an option for you.

Q: I’m an international student. Can I participate?
a: Yes, all JWU students can apply for study abroad programs.
   International students will need to check re-entry regulations to
   get back into the U.S. after the program finishes, as well as research
   entry-visa requirements for the countries visited during the program.

Study abroad financing requires planning time. The study abroad office does not provide financial advising and will always refer you to
student academic & financial services with your financial questions. However, it is important to communicate with us if you are experiencing
any troubles or need any information related to study abroad from the time you apply to the time you return from your program. Prior to meeting
with Student Academic & Financial Services, use this space to start building your financial plan.

Each program has a unique cost that is available on the program-specific fact sheets found online at www.jwu.edu/studyabroad or in the
Study Abroad Office. Start by comparing the cost of studying abroad to studying on campus.

suggested strategies to fund study abroad:
1. Start saving as a freshman. Plan for a program one-to-two years out and use the time to save.

2. Create an overall budget so that you have a realistic target including
          i.   program cost                                   ________ (stated on the program fact sheet)
         ii.   international flight                           ________ (a basic Web search will give you a range)
        iii.   extra meals                                    ________ (be aware of exchange rate)
        iv.    souvenirs                                      ________ (be aware of exchange rate)
         v.    spending money                                 ________ (be aware of exchange rate)
       vi.     personal travel before/after                   ________ (hotels, trains, food, entrance fees, etc.)
       vii.    EsTImaTEd ToTaL:

Don’t make assumptions about your financial eligibility. all students should talk with their JWu financial planner about funding study abroad.
3. Schedule your first meeting with your planner at least six months prior to your program.

 4. Many factors influence your eligibility for financial assistance through JWU. A few factors are
     i. Financial need as determined by the free application for federal student aid (fafsa)
        note: The FAFSA form is available January 1.

         ii. Are you participating in a program during the academic year or summer?
             Note: Academic scholarships are not typically available for summer abroad programs.

        iii. Are you participating in a program before your sophomore/junior year or before your senior year?
             Note: In some cases if you use financial aid during the summer you may not be eligible for all of your academic-year financial aid.

5. if you have anY concerns about funding your program, you must complete a fafsa at www.fafsa.ed.gov in order for JWu to
   determine your financial aid eligibility (JWu’s fafsa code is 003404). Your financial planner can assist you with payment options
   once your financial aid has been determined. it is important that you file for financial aid as soon as possible after January 1.

6. Follow through with Student Academic & Financial Services to finalize your payment arrangements. This may take several meetings with
   your planner!
