Study Abroad

Diary from Japan

UWA Home


Hello, and welcome to the University of West Alabama's study abroad page.  This site is dedicated to educating future pioneers about the exciting possibility of study abroad.  If you are interested in studying aboard, consider this as the first step towards the achievement of your goals!  If you are still undecided, allow me to try to persuade you for a moment. Studying abroad is a great way to expand your character!  Learning to deal with other cultures, encountering attitudes and situations you are not familiar with, facing the daily challenges that characterize studying abroad, all these things combine to create an incredible growth experience.  And let's not forget how appealing this will make you to future employers!

This site is broken down into four main sections, and each one is designed to help you get a handle on the whole study aboard thing.  First up is the article's page, where we have compiled a list of articles that each explores a particular part of study abroad.  Second up is a list of useful links.  Each link has a short description, and will take you to sites that have useful information pertaining to studying abroad.  Next is the Alumni page, which gives information on past study abroad students from UWA.  Lastly we have "The Diary of a Traveling Student," penned by our very own Allan Noble.  Allan studied in Japan from March 2005 until July 2005, and this is the diary that he kept.  For those of you who are interested in studying abroad, you can read his first hand account of the trip.

This website is still a work in progress, but we plan for it to grow by students adding their own information to it.  So please, study abroad so this website will get bigger!  Of course, the benefits to  you will be huge as well.  If y'all have any questions, please contact us.  Or talk to your advisor about studying abroad.  I bet he or she would be pleasantly surprised.
