Building on Your Study Abroad Experiences

Coming home doesn't mean that you are no longer engaged in education abroad, and graduating from IWU doesn't mean that your only option for international engagement is the occasional overseas vacation.

You've returned home from studying abroad, and you feel stronger and wiser.  You probably have many insights in the world that others who have not spent an extended period abroad do not have.  You might also be conscious of a wider set of ideas about your discipline, about the work place, and even about humanity.  Your study abroad experience provides you with strengths and a vision that are almost unattainable under circumstances other than living abroad.


Build on those experiences and strengths!  Learn more about how to market your study abroad experiences; research post-graduate scholarship programs that can help you return abroad; and think about working or volunteering abroad.
