Ask Yourself:

  • What are your reasons for going abroad? What goals do you have, and how will you achieve them?
  • What barriers do you think you may encounter, and how will you overcome them?
  • What safety and/or legal considerations should you be aware of in your host country?
  • What is the political climate of your host country?

Ask your Education Abroad Coordinator and other program staff:

  • What are some affiliated organizations that are known for supporting LGBTQ+ students?
  • Does the program offer LGBTQA+ friendly housing options?
  • What community organizations are available in my host country to offer support?

Prepare and Research:

  • Explore options and look into multiple programs that interest you.
  • Learn about your destination. Determine the legality and climate within your host country.
  • Be prepared. Update your passport and other legal documents if necessary.
  • Talk with an Education Abroad staff member or a representative from any of the resources below if you have further hesitations or concerns throughout the process.
