Study Abroad Week

Study Abroad Week is a week-long event consisting of live online webinars and information sessions to learn more about studying and interning abroad! Throughout the week students will meet UNC Charlotte Education Abroad staff, and will be able to interact with UNC Charlotte students who have studied abroad. Better yet, by attending the Study Abroad Week events, students can be entered to win prizes!

Students are encouraged to complete (or refer back to) Study Abroad 101. This resource covers everything students need to know about going abroad. Study Abroad Week simply reiterates it! The information about different study and intern abroad programs that will be promoted during Study Abroad Week will all be found on the program brochure for a particular program within EA Program Database.

Yes! EA will send out the slides used during the webinars to anyone who registered for that particular webinar the week following Study Abroad Week (even if you can’t attend).

All webinars are live, so you’ll need to watch the webinar on the date and time listed to be eligible for the prize drawings.

When you register for a webinar, your information is collected. Zoom will then track whether or not you actually log on and watch it. This is how we’ll confirm who watched the webinar.
