Program Reviews:
Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
The orientation I received prepared me very well for life abroad, and any information not covered in orientation was easy to find with the help of my host university

Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
My experience as an exchange student in Beijing was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and was reasonably priced as well. I would highly recommend that every student take advantage of UGA's great relationships with foreign universities and participate in a study abroad program before graduation

Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
I couldn't have picked a better location than Beijing from which to go on sightseeing trips and excursions. Right within the city there are at least five major cultural artifacts, and air and rail travel to surrounding cities is quite cheap
