Top Study Abroad Myths

Don’t let these myths prevent you from studying abroad.

  • I can’t afford it- I rely on financial aid and scholarships.
    Many programs enable you to pay OSU tuition and fees to participate. You can use your federal financial aid for most credit-bearing study abroad programs. Scholarships often apply.
  • I don’t speak another language well enough.
    What better way to immerse yourself in another language than studying abroad? Even if you don’t feel confident enough to take college-level classes in another language, many programs offer some courses in English.
  • I don’t have time. I’m majoring in _________.
    Study abroad options range from 2 weeks to a full academic year so you might consider a short-term program. However, with careful and proactive planning, students from all majors can take courses abroad to apply toward their general education requirement and/or their major.
