Wondering how to bring your education abroad experience back to campus? Become an Education Abroad Ambassador! As an Ambassador, your name and a contact form will be listed on our website so that students can contact you with questions about the program you went on!
Ambassadors commit to their name being listed for two years (even past graduation). This is a great opportunity to help fellow students, gain leadership experience, and participate in receptions and celebrations!
Going abroad not only affects your outlook on life and your experience at the University of Rochester, but it also gives you a significant advantage in your future career. Listing education abroad on your résumé is your first step in differentiating yourself from other competitors in the job market. Visit the Career Center to learn more about how you can market your global experience!
If you have recently lived, studied, interned, volunteered, or worked abroad, you are invited to the ROC Your Global Future: Study Abroad Returnee Conference.
This is a networking and career development opportunity where students from 11 different colleges in the greater Rochester area, who have connected with an abroad experience, come together to connect, share, network, and explore additional international opportunities.
- Meeting recent overseas returnees from all over the region
- Hearing from dynamic and motivating speakers
- Learning how to talk about your newly acquired global skills in a job interview
- Exploring how you can work or go abroad after graduation
- Networking with professionals working in internationally-focused jobs
- Staying connected to and sharing stories about your abroad experience
The 2020 photo contest will open for submissions in the fall to those students who participated in an education abroad program in the previous academic year, including Summer 2020. Check out the latest photo contest winners here.
