By Blair Hoover, Austin Hughes

(Jan. 21, 2016) — University of Kentucky Education Abroad (UK EA) is proud to host its Spring Expo from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4 in The Hub of the William T. Young Library. This event is open to all students and faculty who are interested in learning more about education abroad at the UK.

The Spring Expo will offer students the chance to explore all facets of UK EA, including study, research, intern, service and teach abroad. This will allow students to easily identify programs that will help them meet their academic or professional goals. In addition to these informational resources, students will be able to enjoy free food and prizes.

“The Education Abroad Expo showcases a variety of international opportunities available to UK students, from faculty-directed programs to internships abroad,” said Miko McFarland, UK EA assistant director. “It’s important for students to start making education abroad summer plans now, as many deadlines occur in March.”

The expo will introduce new 2016 programs, such as Language Immersion and First-Year Programs. UK EA’s three main portfolios — Global DesignBluegrass Down Under and Celtic Blue — will also be highlighted.

The expo will feature colleges that will be reaching out to students from all majors for their education abroad programs. These faculty-directed programs will take place during summer 2016 and are a great opportunity to earn UK credit abroad.

Other campus resources such as the Stuckert Career Center and National Student Exchange will be present to share information about their services and answer students’ questions. For more information about the UK EA Spring Expo, please contact Austin Hughes, UK EA promotion and outreach coordinator at or call 859-323-2147.
