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? Reach out to any member of our Global Education Student Committee. All students have studied away—some have done multiple programs—and they are eager to talk to you about anything you want to know.


If you have any questions about the programs I did in Berlin or Shanghai feel free to contact me!”
