For today’s students, studying abroad is more than an academic experience, it’s an investment in their future careers. Cocurricular activities like fieldwork, internships, and research can greatly influence students' development and success abroad. This presentation shares strategies, discusses challenges, and explores several cocurricular learning models. This session was selected as the Region XII conference highlight.
