Linfield pays the round trip airfare from the Portland International Airport to your destination city, for your first study abroad experience! In addition, if your major requires you to study abroad, your second airfare is also provided.
Linfield requires all language majors to spend a year abroad. Language minors, as well as majors in anthropology, international business, intercultural communication, and international relations must spend a semester abroad, all through our university partnerships.
Get started in your journey abroad early in your Linfield experience - speak with your faculty adviser and seek out the staff in the International Programs Office in Walker Hall, Suite 120.
"Leaving New Zealand was SO hard, and they don't really tell you just how difficult leaving your study abroad country and friends is. Nothing could have prepared me for my last hugs with my friends, and my last views of the country that changed my life. It was hard to get onto the plane, and even harder to transition back into life in the U.S., but now I can look back and say I had the best experience every, and I am so happy I did it. Studying abroad was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life, and I am already planning my next trip back!
If you are thinking about studying abroad and something is holding you back, just do it. You will not regret it! It will change your life." - Kennedy Kniss, University of Waikato, New Zealand
