Graduate programs go international

International graduate education is the focus of two programs being offered Feb. 22 and 29 by The UW Graduate School. The panels are part of a year-long focus by the school on the fascinating issues, challenges and opportunities within the internationalization of graduate education.

The first program will feature three UW students who will talk about the specifics of how UW graduate students can seek, and secure, opportunities to study abroad. Plus, students from around the world who have come to the UW will talk about their experiences here.

That program will be from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, in 209A HUB.

The second program will explain how students can use the UW’s bilateral exchange agreements, learn About UW units offering international graduate programs, and fund overseas studies. It will be from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 29 in 200BC HUB.

Both programs have been coordinated with the UW Office of International Programs and Exchanges and UW International Student Services. For further information, contact The Graduate School, 206-543-5900.
