The Study Abroad Office understands the needs of students at SVSU and strives to provide the most affordable study abroad program opportunities. Several programs that are offered are equal to SVSU tuition and housing rates. There are even a few programs where tuition and housing costs are waived!
The SVSU Advantage
Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity for any student, but SVSU students in particular benefit from the many unique aspects of SVSU's program. These benefits include:
SVSU allows you to take ALL of your current financial aid and scholarship money awarded to you for the semester in which you are going abroad. In addition, the Study Abroad Office alone offers close to $75,000 to study abroad students every year! Many other on-campus and off-campus scholarships exist.
SVSU has student exchange partnerships with institutions across the world. This means that you will benefit from more affordable programs and the opportunity to meet students studying at SVSU that are from the school you will be studying at abroad.
Study Abroad Office staff are available to meet one-on-one with students at any point in time throughout the planning process. Advisors help you to choose the best program for your needs, find courses that count toward your major, prepare you for international travel, and much, much more!
SVSU has many internationally-related programs on campus that you can take advantage of before and after you go abroad. These programs include student groups, such as the international student club, the global housing community, the global ambassador program, and the conversation partner program. Enjoy events like Intercultural Night and International Food Fest. Learn about different cultures during International Education Week. Or you can simply meet and mingle with over 900 international students that come to study at SVSU from countries around the world!
