These are UNC Charlotte students who have studied abroad and want to be a resource for students who have questions about what life is like abroad. Feel free to email our Peer Advisors directly with any questions you may have about their study abroad experience. If you do not see your country of interest, you're still encouraged to reach out to any of the Peer Advisors below. They would be happy to talk in general about studying abroad and are still a great resource!
"There are many reasons to study abroad. But one of the most important reasons, in my opinion, is that it gives you a lot of confidence and independence. Many people spend their whole lives inside their community bubble, and never get a chance to take a step out of it and experience something they are not comfortable with. The act of studying abroad on its own proves to the individual that they are capable of going to a faraway country, surviving there, and most of all adapting to a culture that is not their own" - Scott

"The major benefits of studying abroad are personal growth, lifelong friends & the ability to travel!" - Sandy
"I believe students should have the opportunity to study abroad because it is important to see the world from a different perspective. Studying abroad gave me the opportunity to see Spain through the eyes of a local student." - Morgan
