    Plan early! Students in the stem disciplines are limited, first and foremost, by their curriculum structure. If students can learn to plan early and determine which semester they want to go study abroad, it can greatly help the, to reduce the time to graduation. Summer opportunities are also one great way to go study abroad for these students. It would be killing two birds with one stone if students can work, intern, volunteers abroad for experiences that are relevant to their majors.
