About The Education Abroad Fair
 
Make the World Your Classroom! 
 
Are you looking for an exciting educational challenge? Have you always wanted to see the world? Do you want to study abroad, but aren’t sure how to start the process?

The 14th Annual Kennesaw State University Education Abroad Fair is the place for you.

KSU offers more than 40 faculty-led study abroad programs in 35 countries, as well as international internships and exchanges. You can also take advantage of education abroad opportunities offered by other Georgia universities and third-party firms specializing in international education.

Come to The Education Abroad Fair and learn about all the experiences available to KSU students. Whether you have a specific destination in mind, or have never even thought about going abroad before, the Education Abroad fair is the perfect place to start your study abroad adventure.

 
Student Information
 
Below you will find information to help you plan your day at the fair. Make sure you see everything, ask questions, and – most importantly – follow up.
 
What is There to do at the Fair?
 
The Education Abroad Fair is your chance to learn everything you can about KSU and non-KSU study abroad experiences. For each available program, you will find exhibits, artwork, videos, and sometimes even food native to the host country. You can also meet the faculty members leading the programs and speak directly with students who have already visited the countries.

While the fair is mostly about education, there will also be some time for fun and games. Event organizers will be giving out great door prizes, and visitors can enter raffles for a chance to win a variety of other fun giveaways. This is a fair after all!
 
What if KSU Doesn't Offer a Program I'm Interested in?
 
If none of the three dozen education abroad programs offered by KSU is for you, then one of the many opportunities offered by other University System of Georgia schools and third-party international education firms might be. Representatives from these organizations will be available at the fair to answer your questions.

Even if you participate in a non-KSU education abroad program, your course credits will still count towards your KSU academic career.
 
How Do I Register to Attend?
 
For students and other attendees, there is no registration required. Simply show up at the Student Center on September 24th!

You may want to review the available education abroad programs at Find a Program before coming to the fair. If there is a program you are particularly interested in, you can already have some questions planned out for the faculty sponsor. Doing some research ahead of time can help you get the most out of the Education Abroad Fair.

How Do I Enter to Win Prizes at the Fair?
 
All attendees will be given raffle tickets when they check in upon arrival at the fair. In addition, be sure to visit all the exhibitor booths for even more chances to take home some great giveaways.
