Why study abroad?

This past year, UW-Eau Claire ranked 27th nationally among public and private master's-level schools in the overall number of students it sends abroad. It's the only school in Wisconsin among the top 30 institutions; one private school in Minnesota also is on the list. In other words, we know the value it adds to your degree, and we make it happen for students in all majors.

Studying abroad leaves lasting impact on Blugold

When Erin Beyer was offered the chance to study abroad in Scotland to earn her emotional and behavioral disorders certification for teaching, the special education major was nervous but determined to do it. A year later, she has the certificate as well as a newly found confidence that comes with successfully pushing herself outside her comfort zone. 

“Studying abroad was intimidating to me at first, but looking back, it was the best experience I had at UWEC,” Erin said. "UWEC has given me the opportunity to travel across the world, increase my depth of knowledge in teaching, and create lifelong connections with fellow students and faculty."

What's National Student Exchange?

Having a new cultural experience does not have to happen overseas. UW-Eau Claire is one of 200 universities participating in National Student Exchange, which allows students to spend a semester at a campus is one of 49 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Canada or Puerto Rico. While paying their Blugold tuition rate, students are able to have a whole new academic and cultural experience, progress toward graduation and gain valuable diversity of perspective.
