Have you ever dreamt of exploring your passions in a foreign country, or simply experiencing a different culture? If yes, then you are in luck! Here at IU South Bend, you can follow your dreams while also earning your degree.
IU South Bend International Programs is offering seven study abroad trips for the 2023 school year. Every trip is unique and offers its own specific educational enrichment. Based on your own personal passions and major or minor, you can find a trip that best fits your interests. However, most of the trips are open to all majors and skill levels.
The study abroad trips being offered for 2023 are in Belize, Berlin, Canada, Costa Rica, Florence, Ireland, and Japan.
There is a variation in trip lengths to accommodate different student availability. Additionally, the longer the trip, the higher the price; however, if cost is a concern, you can explore the different lengths and costs to find the perfect trip for you.
“They are also targeted toward varying lengths of time and budgets, created with time, and cash, strapped IU South Bend students in mind,” the IU South Bend International Programs webpage states.
There are many scholarships offered for students that are interested in studying abroad. To find out if you are eligible for these scholarships, you must complete an application for international programs and turn it into the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.
If you are interested in any of the trips, it is recommended to fill out the application form as soon as possible.
Additionally, if you are interested in talking to someone about the process, you can contact any of the trip leaders and they will be more than happy to answer any questions.
If none of the existing trips fit your needs or interests, IU South Bend students are also eligible for all trips held throughout the Indiana University network. For a list of all the trips sponsored by IU, visit iabroad.iu.edu.
