    Will it be You to study abroad?

    ALERT: For students traveling in spring and summer 2020, keep an eye on this page for travel alerts from the Office of International Affairs: //oia.osu.edu/travel-alerts


    1. How do I find out about Education abroad opportunities? Contact education abroad director Virginia Cope at cope.38@osu.edu or search for programs at educationabroad.osu.edu and oia.osu.edu

    listed on their site. You can use CarmenConnect to join the Columbus-based "Getting Started" sessions.

    2. Should I wait until I am a junior or senior to study abroad? Newark-sponsored programs are appropriate for students of any rank and we encourage freshmen to apply. OSU’s Global May programs also are designed specifically to get first- and second-year students abroad early in their academic life. Many students who study abroad once go on to do another program later, so it’s a good idea to get started soon.

    3. Does Newark have its own education abroad program? Each year the Newark campus sponsors several education abroad courses. Read more. Newark campus students may also apply to any education abroad program listed on the OIA site, so long as they can fulfill the requirements (for example, some classes may require taking a course beforehand in Columbus).

    4. Will I earn course credit? All OSU-sponsored education abroad travel courses provide credit, and most fulfill the open-option GE. The educationabroad.osu.edu site also provides information on OSU-approved programs provided by third parties that can provide credit.

    5. How much do programs cost?

    6. Can I get help paying for the courses?

    grants and scholarships available and be sure to read this overview

    file an appeal with Financial Aid to increase aid in order to take advantage of a scholarship or grant. OIA will provide the budget letter necessary to file this appeal.

    7. What types of programs does Newark offer?

    8. What other education abroad courses should I consider? Global May options are open to students of any major or rank and can take you to Paris, Brazil, China, Great Britian, Spain, Uganda or Hungary. Programs to Cyprus and Corfu give priority to regional campus students which is very helpful for getting in to these popular programs. Also, education majors can fulfill the FEEP requirement with a course to Indonesia organized by one of our Newark faculty.

    9. Do I need to speak a foreign language? 504 Gateway Time-out

    10. How do I apply? You apply through educationabroad.osu.edu

    11. What are the requirements for being accepted into a program? You do need to be academically ready to study in another country. Generally, a GPA of 2.0 or higher is required. Other requirements vary by program. All details are provided in the program sheets at educationabroad.osu.edu.
