[Virtual] Study Abroad/Away Fair on Friday

submitted by

On Friday, September 18th, the study abroad/away office will be holding our first ever virtual study abroad/away fair! We will be using the career services software “Handshake” for Auggies to set up one on one appointments with study abroad providers, in addition to joining group presentations. Representatives will be live from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Top tips to get the most out of Augsburg’s Virtual Study Abroad/Away Fair:

(1) Set up your profile in Handshake, making sure to provide more details on yourself and what you are looking for.

(2) Browse the Program Preview pages at to see which programs will be at the fair – you can see quick videos, photos of the representative you can meet, and more! This should help you narrow down a few you’d really like to talk to.

(3) Start building your schedule! You can book 1-1 meetings or group sessions with some of the representatives, where you can learn more and ask questions about the programs. You can add sessions on the day of the fair, but many times may be booked – so make your preferred schedule early!
