Racial and Ethnic Diversity

Race and Ethnicity

Every student is entitled to have a wonderful experience while abroad; this applies to students of the minority or majority.  Some students may be racial minorities at home but study in countries where their race is the majority.  Others may be a racial minority for the first time. Students may find that race is less an issue than their nationalities when abroad.

Be aware to do research on your host country, as well as consult with your peers who have studied abroad.  The links below will specify information on certain races while studying abroad:
