Return to Campus
You've gotten back from your study abroad destination. Suddenly the world seems a little different than it did before—and that's a great thing. But at this point, you might be thinking to yourself...
UC International encourages you to take what you've learned and use it to better yourself and your peers at home.
Complete your scholarship outreach project
If you received the UC International scholarship, you agreed to complete an outreach project as a condition of the award. Learn more about your options for completing the project.

Go abroad again
If you can make it happen with your coursework, academic schedule, and budget, you CAN study abroad again.
- We've had students who have studied abroad up to eight separate times, and even a student who was abroad for 18 months!
- You'll follow the same process as before, but hopefully you'll find it a little easier & quicker this time.
- If you're thinking about going abroad again, try something completely different. It never hurts to learn about a new country and culture!
