How does international experience give a competitive edge to sport and recreation science students?

Very few things in the world gel friendships and rivalries as much as sport. Whether professional or college sports in America, rugby in Ireland, cricket in New Zealand, soccer in China or “footie” in Australia, each country in the world is madly passionate about its national sports.

Sport is much more than just teams, players and fans; it’s about the business and marketing end, program and team management, facilities, coaching, health and wellness, exercise science, sports medicine and more.

That’s why a study abroad experience is tailor-made for college students majoring or studying in these areas. Whether you want to work for a sports team, a league, a rehabilitation facility or as a coach or trainer, studying or interning abroad will make a huge difference in the opportunities available to you when you go to graduate.

In a Student's Words...

"I was nervous at first about study abroad, but I learned that I can survive on my own just fine. I am now confident about myself and my actions around others. I feel more socially directed and this experience has made me more outgoing and less shy. I have become more culturally educated, not just about Australia but about many parts of the world. I am more open minded about society and the world as a whole."
