One of the best ways to find out if a program is a good fit for you is to talk to a student who has gone. Use the resources below to connect with students who have done the program(s) you are interested in pursuing.

Want advice about study abroad/away straight from a Duke student? Ask our Global Ed Student Committee. All committee members have studied away—some have done multiple programs—and they are eager to talk to you about anything you want to know.


If you ever want to talk to someone about your study abroad plans or just want to chat about anything London/the UK/Benedict Cumberbatch related, feel free to let me know!”

Past Participant Database

You can also use our database of past participants to look up students by their study away program(s). Everyone on these lists has participated in a study away program while at Duke and has agreed to be a resource to others seeking advice.
