Testimonial

Belgium Germany testimonial

Regina Flores Summer 2018

Studying abroad has been one of the most beneficial life experiences I’ve ever had. Besides taking a psychology class, I was able to learn a new language, experience different styles of education, and making life-long friends from different backgrounds. I was fascinated by the distinct cultural perspectives such as new foods, customs, traditions, and social atmospheres. Studying abroad taught me to have a better understanding and appreciation for the nation’s people and history.

During the session topics about travel, required documents, health, safety, culture and academic requirements and responsibilities will be discussed. Orientation assists you in establishing realistic expectations of your study abroad experiences and know more about your responsibilities as a TAMIU student on a study abroad program. Students will also be informed of any pending paperwork that needs to be submitted.
