Travel in grad school seems far-fetched, but I promise you it’s not! As a self-proclaimed nerd, grad school was in the plan for me, however it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your wanderlust to do so. Whether working in a study abroad office, pursuing international business courses, or even classes international relations and global communications, there are ways to incorporate travel in your higher education plans.
With most graduate programs requiring a year or more commitment in one place, it can be challenging to make it a priority during your graduate studies. You have to be intentional about it on your search, which starts when you apply. Asking questions early is always best. As someone who has gone through this process, I hope these tips can help and motivate you to travel in grad school.
