Every Stanford undergraduate should give serious consideration to studying away.

Regardless of the academic path you choose, you will be enriched by time spent in another country. Achieving cultural literacy and gaining substantive understanding of other perspectives in the world will deepen your awareness of yourself, your educational goals, and your own society. Nearly one-half of each graduating class studies away through one of Stanford's off-campus programs.
