UMD: A Globally Connected University

Voices of #TerpsAbroad

A Study Abroad Series

You've seen the pictures and browsed some programs options, but want to hear what study abroad is really like? Our #TerpsAbroad series lets you hear first-hand accounts from your peers at UMD. We will be checking in with students throughout the year to hear what they have learned on topics including culture immersion, meeting people abroad, budgeting, and more!

Do you want to hear the Terp perspective on a specific topic? Send us an email and let us know what you want to learn!
