Share your Story
Now that you’re back, you’re a great source of information for potential study abroad students. By creating a Student Profile, you can give interested students a glimpse into what studying abroad is really like from the perspective of a student who actually went! If you’d like to talk to other FIU students and share your stories and insights, send an email to email@example.com letting us know that we can give out your email to students interested in going on your same program. Just be sure to put “Email consent for study abroad questions” as the subject of the email.
Submit your best photos
We here at the OSA love getting to see your photos from abroad, and we’re always looking for new ones to use in our publications and in our Picture Gallery. To submit a photo, just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and make sure to include your name and the location the photo was taken in the subject of the email. Keep in mind that by submitting your photos, you are consenting to their use in future publications from our office. Ideally, we’re looking for photos that capture unique and interesting moments from abroad, inside and outside the classroom.
Post on the OSA Blog
We are looking for students to share their experiences, challenges, and insights of their study abroad programs on our OSA Blog. We’re looking for posts on a range of topics, from daily life, culture, program details, events and activities, and how you adapted to your new home. Ideally, we’d like posts on anything that’ll help give interested students a true look into what life abroad is really like on a day-to-day basis. Students can submit a single post, a series of posted, or even captioned photos or videos. Please send your submissions to email@example.com, and make sure to mention your name, program, location, and term abroad. Please be advised that all submissions will be reviewed prior to being posted on the blog.
Join the Study Abroad Club
The Study Abroad Club @ FIU is a great way for you to help promote study abroad on campus while having fun with other students interested in travel and inbound exchange students. Take a look at the Study Abroad Club @ FIU Facebook page, and be sure to join our Orgsync to find out about upcoming events and activities. If you’d like to be paired up with incoming exchange students to help them experience Miami like the locals do, consider becoming a Study Abroad Buddy. More information on how to apply can be found on our facebook and orgsync pages.
Find us on Facebook
If you haven’t done so already, “like” our page on facebook to stay informed about our office events, scholarship opportunities, and new study abroad programs. Just becuase you’ve already gone on a study abroad program doesn’t mean that you can’t go abroad again! We here at the Office of Study Abroad are committed not only to helping your get abroad while you’re a student here at FIU, but we’re also constantly searching for opportunities to study abroad after you’ve graduated. By liking our page, you’ll stay posted on all of these great opportunities. Find us here!
Apply for Fulbright
If your study abroad experience has sparked your inner travel bug, you should consider applying for the very prestigious Fulbright US Student Program. This is a great way to get abroad after you’ve graduated to either pursue research or teach English. What’s even better is that we have a Fulbright advisor here in the office to help you through the application process!
