Study Abroad Programs At UC Blue Ash College

While learning in the classroom is an essential part of higher education, life experiences such as meeting new people in different parts of the world can transform and shape a person for the rest of their life.

Students who study abroad often claim they return a completely different person with a newfound respect for diversity and a fresh perspective. Having the opportunity to step (or leap!) out of one’s comfort zone, perhaps for the first time, is priceless
