Tag along with three Rollins students as they give you a behind-the-scenes look at their study abroad experiences in Australia, France, and Iceland.

Studying abroad is a life-changing experience that every college student should consider. But like any big decision it comes with its fair share of questions. “What’s it really like to live and study in another country?” is often one of the biggest.

With that in mind, we asked three Rollins students to give you a glimpse into their study abroad experiences in different parts of the world. Along the way, you’ll find out what it’s like to live like a local in France, study climate change in Iceland, and intern at a human rights organization in Australia.

By the end of the video, we hope you have a better feel for what it’s like to study abroad in college. If living and learning in another part of the world is one of your can’t-miss college experiences, your next step is to find a school like Rollins that believes that study abroad is an essential piece of your education.
