Who says you can’t study abroad as a graduate student? Undergrads don’t get to have all of the fun! (Though it is a lot more fun than grad school…)
Both “graduate student” and “study abroad” CAN be used in the same sentence. I think a reason that the majority of graduate students and graduate programs don’t encourage/organize graduate student study abroad opportunities is because each program and graduate student experience is unique. My experience at my university as a Public Health PhD student is vastly different from another PhD student also in Public Health. I was really happy to have a study abroad experience as a graduate student and I will be writing about my experience and thoughts.
Here I will be put a list of some posts ( and posts to come) about studying abroad as a graduate student.
