Study Abroad in East Asia
The University of Kansas promotes international exchange as a vital link in education. Students may choose from semester, academic year, and summer programs in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. These vary in structure from exchanges and individually arranged programs to group programs led by KU faculty members.
Study abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity whose benefits go far beyond academic learning. Students develop skills in intercultural communication and problem-solving applicable to everyday life. Students learn to become independent and take initiative, and they gain self-confidence, flexibility, perseverance, and appreciation of diversity. An international experience strengthens career opportunities and increases awareness of the interconnected nature of the world. The global character of the economy has prompted more students to experience cross-cultural linkages first-hand.
