ExL Study Abroad Program

Are you going away on Exchange or Study Away? Don’t forget to pack your Study Abroad Experiential Learning Workbook!

The ExL workbook is available to all students approved to go away on Exchange or Study Away. To get your copy, don’t forget to attend the Mandatory Pre-departure Orientation Session for students travelling abroad.

This workbook is designed to help you reflect and learn from the variety of your experiences while studying abroad. Self-reflection will develop your insight into yourself and in turn your interactions with others and the outside world. To facilitate this process, we will ask you to think critically about your learning and answer questions about your motivations, experiences, and goals. Our aim is that these exercises help you to be intentional about your opportunity to study abroad in order to make the most of your experience.

Upon your return, you are also invited to attend a workshop entitled “Unpacking your Study Abroad.” In this targeted workshop, offered twice a year (1st week in February and 1st week in October), you will have the opportunity to debrief some of the highlights from your time abroad, but also to mine your experience for skill development of use in your CV, Cover Letter, and in interviews. The next "Unpacking Your Study Abroad" workshop will be held on Thursday, February 7th, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. in the Brown Building, Room 5001.
