YES! The cost of studying abroad is within the reach of most UST students. Financial aid applies to semester study abroad, and students not currently receiving financial aid may be eligible for loans. In addition, there are special scholarships for studying abroad.
Begin planning right away. It is never too early to start planning. Stop by the IEC, sign up for a “First Step” session (go to their website for details, see left), and use their library to begin researching destinations.
Set some goals. There is not one program best suited for all biology majors. You need to determine which one best fits you. Prioritize your goals. Consider your long-term academic, professional, and career goals.
Think about what you want to learn from (and what you can contribute to) the program, college, and country where you want to be.
Prepare academically. You may need to take prerequisites or plan for classes upon your return.
Start a budget.
