We are busy preparing for our 11th annual Study Abroad Fair which will be held in Mary Gates Hall Commons on Wednesday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  More than 600 approved study abroad opportunities will be represented at the fair making this an ideal venue for both graduate and undergraduate students to learn more about their options for education and research abroad.  We are expecting exhibitors from 12 university exchanges, 23 UW academic departments, and 10 study abroad and internship organizations, in addition to a number of UW administrative departments that support study abroad.  

We are particularly excited to have a number of newly-affiliated program partners at the fair, including Tel Aviv University International ProgramBen Gurion University of the Negev (Israel), School for Field Studies, School of Russian and Asian Studies, IES Abroad, as well as new UW (faculty-led) programs.

Students will have the opportunity to talk directly with study abroad program representatives as well as staff from UW International Programs and Exchanges.  We have also organized a number of workshops, also to be held in Mary Gates Hall, that will take place during the fair.
