Most Memorable Moment

The people I’ve met here are great. I’ve learned so much from them and I feel like I’ve made lifetime friends. Almost every conversation is shared over food and drinks, and because of that, I feel really connected to the culture here (food smells will always remind me of Korea).

Adult Students Abroad

UW-Madison defines an adult student as someone who is 25 years of age or older. Adult students naturally face different concerns when considering a study abroad program. Adult students are often balancing their academic lives with major responsibilities at home such as having a part time or full time job and/or taking care of your children. No matter your situation, IAP is here to help find the best study abroad program for you!

Here are a few things to consider and questions to ask when choosing a program:

Be sure to research what people in your host country like to do and where they live. For example, do they work? Do they live with extended family or on their own? Sometimes you might feel that you don't fit in with other students on your program, but remember to get to know them & have them get to know you!
