Study abroad experiences relocate

By

University of Florida students planning to study abroad this summer in Japan through the University are going to need a change of plans. Due to the natural disasters and political unrest that has plagued Japan in recent months, the University of Florida has decided to switch their study abroad program in Japan from Tokyo to Berlin, Germany. However, there are still other programs offering study abroad programs in Japan this Summer, which gives UF students the opportunity to switch trips to a Japan study-abroad provider. Despite this change of plans for some students, UF Study Abroad Assistant Director Kirsten Eller-Laufer says all study abroad programs are character building experiences.

“To have that opportunity to live in another country, to see how another society functions; to see what their customs are, their norms; it completely forces you to reevaluate your own ideas on the world, and hopefully come out a more well-rounded and international person,” she says.

The University offers a very diverse selection of Study Abroad Programs for a wide range of majors and interests.
