This month, we want to share with you one of the best opportunities available to your students while they are at Hampden-Sydney College - study abroad
! H-SC encourages students to further their education while living in another country, whether for a semester, full year, or during the summer. We approve more than 100 semester programs
in over 30 countries and summer programs such as the Virginia Program at Oxford
and May Term Abroad
programs taught by Hampden-Sydney faculty. This year, students have been studying in England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and Spain - and more than 40 students will be leaving in a few weeks for summer programs in Argentina, England, Germany and Japan.
We encourage you to review the information on the Global Education website
, such as the Study Abroad Handbook, and discuss with your students which program would best fit their personal and academic goals. There are also funding opportunities
specifically for study abroad. And do check out the Tigers Abroad
blog where students who are currently abroad post about their adventures and share pictures!
