About Us
What is CSUStudentsAbroad.com?

CSUStudentsAbroad.com is a resource for students at all California State University (CSU) campuses contemplating studying abroad. This website includes the study abroad programs offered by the CSU Chancellor's Office (CSU International Programs) which are all year-long programs. It also provides information about other programs offered by the other 23 CSU campuses that are available for any CSU student. Unlike other study abroad websites, along with providing program information, the information on CSUStudentsAbroad.com provides insights on the importance of health and safety awareness in general, and specifically for countries where we've developed a Country Handbook. Our website includes 48 country-specific study abroad handbooks, which give students the details necessary to hit the ground running and learn the ins and outs of their destination. While our general handbook is designed as a global guide, it enriches all students' understanding so they may safely and smoothly navigate their host country and become savvy travellers empowered to get the most out of their study abroad experience.

Although choosing an educational program, financing education, and applying to a university abroad can be confusing and sometimes overwhelming, CSUStudentsAbroad.com enables students to research program offerings and access resources that guide them each step of the way—from learning basic phrases to becoming acquainted with the local transportation system.

CSUStudentsAbroad.com facilitates not only students', but also parents', learning about the various challenges faced in the study abroad experience, which include culture shock, drug and alcohol abuse, and general mental health. In addition to these tools, the "Program Search" option encourages students to explore the study abroad option best fitting their interests, especially in non-traditional study abroad countries, such as Thailand, Morocco, and Peru. Such search innovations make essential information accessible, which assist students in finding the program perfect for them!
