LEARN ABOUT HOW STUDY ABROAD HAS IMPACTED THEIR LIVES AFTER COLLEGE

Bart Robinson had no idea where his study abroad experience would lead him when he first applied for a semester in France and then an internship in South Africa. Studying abroad really opened up a whole new set of possibilities I didn't even know was out there. Those unexpected opportunities are what directed Bart's career choice. I've been lucky enough to see some amazing places and meet some one-of-a-kind people through study abroad, but the best part is that studying abroad is only the beginning to a great future that you never saw coming. From Europe to Aftica to Europe again and then Asia; I never thought in a million years that I would be working as a development economist in Vietnam, but here I am.

Like many other students Bart found that, study abroad has given me the necessary people skills and the attitude to go wherever I want to go and pursue whatever future career I care to pursue.

For Bart studying abroad is not just a vacation to another country. It's a new experience that is incorporated into your life and how you view things.
