Want to go to Scotland or Taiwan to spend a semester studying? How about Ireland, Austria or Spain? The University of South Carolina Study Abroad program offers students at USC the chance to travel to other countries, learn different languages and live with families they haven't met before.
Representatives from different universities from all over the world gathered at USC to let students know about study abroad educational opportunities.
Kate Godwin, who works for the Center of International Studies, says she spent semesters in Brazil and in Spain, and says it was a great experience.
"I loved it! I got to live with families both times that didn't speak English so it was a really good opportunity to learn the language and learn the culture," said Godwin.
Study Abroad advisor Sarah Langston says the program is an opportunity for students to grow.
"People really change. They become more independent and more self-confident and learn how to do things on their own," Langston said.
USC is trying to offer more students the chance to be part in the program. So whether you want to spend a semester in Europe, Great Britain, Ireland, Taiwan, Australia or New Zealand, the University of South Carolina Study Abroad Program can help you get there.
