Upon Your Return

Any and every international experience is transformative and unique, and we want to here about your experience! There are many different ways to stay in touch after, and we hope that you are involved with us, and helping to spread the word about study abroad to other students.

If your education abroad program requires that you transfer credits back to WVU, please follow the steps in the guide "How to transfer back your foreign credits" located on the right side of this page.

Education Abroad Student Ambassadors

Have you participated in a West Virginia University Education Abroad program? Do you want to share your abroad experience with other students? Become an Education Abroad Student Ambassador! Student Ambassadors are a valuable part of the Education Abroad team. Responsibilities for student ambassadors include:

  • Promoting study abroad events via word-of-mouth, social media, on-campus outreach efforts, and other marketing initiatives
  • Representing WVU Education Abroad at campus-wide events
  • Aiding in the development of new international programs and opportunities
  • Fostering relationships with international students on campus.

In 2019, Education Abroad piloted the “Buddy Program”, which is a peer support program. The Buddy Program helps incoming students settle into life at WVU by matching them with one of our Education Abroad Student Ambassadors to provide informal support by regularly meeting up and sharing their experiences and tips. We believe the providing peer support to new students, in their first few months is crucial to a quality student experience and the student ambassador’s role will be important in achieving this.
