There is no ideal time-frame or length of stay for a study abroad experience. Determining when, and for how long, you will study abroad depends on a variety of factors you should consider with your academic advisor and study abroad advisor. All types of programs, faculty-led, exchange, and Guilford affiliated, can be found in each of the three following periods.
Fall or Spring Semester / January term / Summer
Each of these periods offer their own unique advantages. Students should reflect on this dimension of the study abroad experience in light of their own academic goals before making any decision. In order to see all possibilities, do an "ADVANCED SEARCH," which will narrow your options by term.
