Why Study Abroad?

  • Earn academic credit toward degree plan including residency hours: students are going abroad more than once, and graduating on time, while taking courses that are not offered at Texas A&M University.
  • Enhance your skill set for your resume and boost your starting salary: various studies show that students who have studied abroad find employment more regularly and earn higher salaries than their peers who stayed in the U.S. throughout college.

  • Join other Aggies: Texas A&M is committed to increasing student participation in high impact, international experiences challenging each college to set its own goals for participation. Over 5,000 Texas A&M students each year participate on international experiences.
