Study Abroad Week

 

 
Watch 1 live online webinar and attend 1 in-person event and be entered to win! See below for details.
Study Abroad Week is a week-long event comprised of webinars and in-person opportunities to learn more about studying and interning abroad. These events are aimed to fit into your schedule and to fit your interests; you get to sign up for or attend what is interesting to you! This is also an opportunity for you to put common Study Abroad Myths to rest. Many students tend to have pre-conceived notions about affordability, academic credit, and the benefits of going abroad. By attending the live webinars or in-person events, you'll learn firsthand from OEA staff and UNC Charlotte students who have studied abroad what it really means to have an international experience! Better yet, by attending the Study Abroad Week events you can even be entered to win! All Study Abroad Week events facilitated by the OEA are free to attend and are open to UNC Charlotte students, parents, faculty & staff.

Study Abroad Week will take place Monday, March 18th 2019 through Friday, March 22nd 2019. Live webinars and in-person events will be offered each day throughout the day.

OEA staff members will be presenting on a topic and you can watch from wherever you have access to a computer & internet! Please review our Live Webinar Guide before attending webinars hosted by the OEA.
