Eastern Illinois University Study Abroad

Making the decision to study abroad is life-changing. More than 300,000 U.S. college students study abroad on an annual basis. This includes the 100-200 EIU students who take part each year. Several studies show the correlation between international experience and higher employability rates, higher salaries, expanded academic and professional networks, and increased self-confidence, among many other benefits.

EIU's William V. Weber Program in Study Abroad is here to help students every step of the way. Students determined to study abroad, or those who would simply like more information are encouraged to contact a WWSA Advisor to schedule an advising appointment at or (217) 581- 7355. Students will meet one-on-one with a WWSA Advisor to discuss student learning goals, learn about available program options, the application process, financing options, and the payment/registration process. Students are expected to discuss study abroad plans with their academic advisor during the early stages of planning.

EIU encourages all eligible students to consider participating in international education during their academic career.
