  • FAQ

    How does study abroad benefit my student?

    Now more than ever, it is important that students learn to be responsible global citizens. Studying abroad enhances academic learning by providing a different perspective to view a student's chosen degree and coursework. This will help your student become more successful in academics and their future career. Employers and graduate schools agree that candidates who have international experience are more likely to succeed after graduation. Whether students want to improve their language skills, build lifelong friendships, experience new cultures, or see a different part of the world, study abroad will open many doors to their future. Students returning from study abroad programs say they benefit most from the personal growth and self-confidence international travel fosters.

    Is study abroad expensive?

    No. Study abroad costs about the same as a semester of tuition, fees and room and board at Saint Martin's. Most students remain eligible for financial aid, and there are also many scholarships available.

    Will my student fall behind academically?

    No. As part of the application process, we require students speak to their advisors about study abroad and their academic goals. Students must take a full course load while they are abroad, and the credits from an approved partnership will transfer back to Saint Martin's either as elective credit or credit toward the student's major or minor.

    Is study abroad safe?

    Yes. Although it may be a little scary sending your student out into the world, we work hard to make sure our students are secure at all times. We closely monitor our study abroad locations and will cancel a program or return students if a region is found to be unsafe. Flights, housing and insurance are arranged well in advance of students intended departure dates. For semester and summer programs, a local orientation is provided on-site when students arrive in their host countries.
