Students who are Parents

Each and every study abroad program is a little different. Some are led by faculty-leaders, others are a cohort model and some provide a student a great amount of flexibility and independence. Having a child should by no means deter you from studying abroad; it simply requires you to consider your academic and personal needs as well as those of your child. Each Study Abroad Coordinator is happy to discuss programs in their region that would allow more flexibility, so that you can study abroad with your child. As you research different programs and locations, be sure to consider visa requirements for students and their dependents, childcare options in that country/city, and what kind of housing options are available on that particular program.
