Welcome to life post-study abroad!
You are back home in the world of oversized burritos, amenities like ice cubes and air conditioning, and where age requirements are higher to drink, but lower to drive.
We originally had the idea for Life After Study Abroad when we both returned from studying abroad and realized there was nowhere to find answers to reverse culture shock. So we said to each other, “There needs to be an awesome, definitive guide for students coming home. We’re both recent study abroad students, we work in the study abroad field, we’re both dealing with reverse culture shock, and we both want to get back out there! Let’s do this.”
Our vision for this guide is an annual publication that students can access for in print and for free digitally. The publication includes several sections that will each take you down a different, unique, and amazing path to returning abroad. Included in each section, you will find ways to do everything from teaching English to kids in Africa, to interning for innovative companies in Europe, to volunteering with elephants in Asia, and more. Got a big interview coming up and feeling a little unsure in discussing your travel experiences? We have career advice to help you land that next awesome opportunity.
We hope you enjoy Life After Study Abroad and find the right adventure! Good luck in wherever your journeys take you!
