Local students participate in study abroad program

This Winter, more than a thousand students will study abroad through the University of Delaware’s innovative program.

UD’s nationally recognized study abroad program offers students from every academic discipline an opportunity to engage in discovery learning, experience different cultures and develop relationships with fellow Blue Hens. During this winter session, more than 1,000 University of Delaware students will travel to 24 different countries as part of 50 different programs spanning 39 academic subjects. They will pursue up to seven academic credits during five weeks of study.

UD is a national leader in study abroad programs. Approximately 35 percent of undergraduate students study outside of the U.S. on an annual basis. The winter session is the most popular time for UD students to do so, with about 80% of all study abroad activity taking place during this period.

Local students include: Nicole Isaac, will study abroad in Budapest; Katherine Schmidt, will study abroad in Argentina.
