Information for Students

Studying away requires careful planning and it’s never too early to start! Buffalo State students from any major can participate in a variety of programs in more than 70 countries, a perk that can make researching your options both exciting and intimidating. The Office of International Education has numerous resources to help you find the program that best fits your specific needs.

Researching Programs

The first step to studying abroad is to conduct your own research – this will help you figure out what kind of program interests you the most. You may begin to explore Buffalo State’s programs here or you may visit our office in South Wing 430 to peruse program brochures.

There is not one single, correct way to choose a program. Different students will have different factors that take priority depending on what they would like to get out of their study abroad experience. We recommend that you begin by making a list of your priorities (i.e. location, program length, language of instruction, academic goals, cost, preferred type of housing, etc.). How long do you want to be abroad? What kinds of classes will you need while you are away? Are you looking to take courses in another language? Do you want to study in a non-English speaking country but take courses in English? Do you prefer going abroad alongside a Buffalo State faculty member? Answering some of these questions can help you narrow down your search!
