International Learning offers opportunities for education abroad and internationalization at home to Western students. We also welcome visiting students from universities worldwide. With study abroad and exchange programs, volunteer opportunities, and a new Global and Intercultural Engagement Honor program, there are many ways to complement your Western degree with global experience.
FIMS student Erin Hoffman's experience on exchange.
"Western has a great campus life for students. I've never seen so much school spirit within a college until I arrived at Western."
"This exchange has transformed me into an even better leader and a more confident individual. I would recommend doing an exchange in Hong Kong to anyone."
