Brigham Young University Achieves Top U.S. Ranking for Study Abroad Programs

By Katerina Gasset

Brigham Young University, a cornerstone of our Provo community, has just snagged a top spot in the U.S. for its study abroad program. As someone who's always been intrigued by different cultures and the enriching experiences of travel, this news is music to my ears.

Brigham Young University Takes the Lead in Study Abroad Programs

  • Top Ranking: BYU has been recognized as a leader in offering exceptional study abroad opportunities.
  • The Impact: This isn’t just about traveling; it’s about opening doors to global learning and understanding.

I’ve always admired BYU for its commitment to providing broad, horizon-expanding experiences to its students. And now, with this recognition, it's clear that they're not just talking the talk; they're walking the walk on a global stage.

The World as a Classroom: BYU’s Global Reach

  • Diverse Destinations: From Europe to Asia, BYU’s programs cover a wide range of countries and cultures.
  • Learning Beyond Borders: These programs are about immersing in new cultures, languages, and ways of thinking.
  • Real-World Experience: Students get to apply their learning in real-world settings, making their education even more relevant and impactful.

Why This Matters for Provo and BYU Students

  • Cultural Exchange: These programs enrich not just the students who travel, but also bring diverse perspectives back to Provo.
  • Educational Excellence: It highlights BYU’s commitment to providing top-tier educational experiences.
  • Community Pride: For us in Provo, it’s a matter of pride to have such an institution in our midst.

This achievement by BYU isn’t just a feather in their cap; it’s a testament to the vibrant, forward-thinking spirit that permeates our city.

  • Vast Variety: Brigham Young University offers an impressive 131 international study programs, covering every corner of the globe.
  • Tailored to Students: Each program is carefully crafted to align with various academic disciplines, from humanities to sciences.
  • Beyond Academics: These programs are about immersive cultural experiences, language learning, and global networking.

The buzz about these study abroad programs was palpable. I met students prepping for places like Paris, Tokyo, and Cairo. It’s like having the world at your fingertips!

Diving Deeper into Brigham Young University’s International Studies

  • Cross-Continental Learning: These programs span continents, offering studies in Europe, Asia, Africa, and beyond.
  • Unique Experiences: From studying biodiversity in the Amazon to exploring historical sites in Europe, the breadth of experiences is astounding.
  • Language and Culture: Many programs focus on language immersion, an invaluable skill in our globalized world.

My Thoughts on the Global Stage

I know many BYU students and I’ve seen how these international experiences have shaped them. They come back with a newfound appreciation for the world and their place in it. It’s like watching young minds turn into global citizens right before our eyes.

Embracing a World of Opportunities

  • For Prospective Students: This is a fantastic reason to consider BYU if you’re looking at colleges.
  • For the Provo Community: We get to interact with and learn from these well-traveled students, enriching our own understanding of the world.
  • For the Students: It’s an opportunity to expand your horizons and prepare for a global future.

So, to all the adventurous souls at Brigham Young University gearing up to jet off, I say, embrace these experiences. And to our Provo community, let’s celebrate and support this fantastic global initiative. It’s not just BYU reaching out to the world; it’s the world coming right into our backyard.

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
