There are many opportunities to study abroad with Kirkwood Community College and students interested in learning more can attend the Study Abroad Fair on Sept. 22 in The Café. This year there are 17 different programs to 15 different countries for short terms, as well as five programs to four different countries for longer terms.

Kirkwood is ranked no. 4 in the nation for sending students abroad.

Study Abroad Advisor Ken Nesbett explained, “The reason we are able to do these programs so well is because we have experienced faculty who are willing to take time out of their year to bring a group of students overseas.” 

According to Nesbett, there is a Global Advantage Scholarship, which is available to most degree-seeking students at KCC. This year students can go to Europe, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, South America and Asia. New programs this year include Dominican Republic, France/England, India, Northern Italy, Vietnam and Zambia.

The deadlines to apply for these programs are Oct. 15, Nov. 1 and Dec. 16, depending on when the program takes place. Additionally, some programs have prerequisites. Homework to be completed before, during or after the program is also a possibility. 

At the Study Abroad Fair each program will have its own information session where alumni will be present. The details for each information session are located on the study abroad website at
