 Why Study Abroad?

- You gain confidence and feel empowered after successfully navigating an International experience! 

- It differentiates you from your peers.  You have an experience that only a handful of other students have and it's a great way to network and build your International résumé.

- It makes you culturally aware.  If you observe practices in other countries, you have a greater understanding of the profession as a whole and of global veterinary issues.

- It's fun!  Whether you travel alone or with a group of your classmates, you will see and do amazing things and share the experience with people who are not only your colleagues, but friends you will keep in touch with forever. 

If we don't offer a program that appeals to your interests, stop by and let Katie Davidson know what you want to do and where you want to go!  She is in the Office of Academic and Student Affairs, room 2270C or you can e-mail katied@iastate.edu!


Iowa State partners with veterinary schools all over the world!  In past years, students have studied in Ireland, Spain, Australia, Mexico, Norway, the Philippines, Costa Rica, and many more! 

The ideal time for individual exchanges is during your fourth year clinical rotations.  Minimum time abroad is 2 weeks.  Maximum time depends on your rotation schedule and vacation weeks.
