Spend a whole semester in another country and immerse yourself in a new culture with programs that make it easier for you to study abroad.
Go with Columbia faculty and students for a shorter experice that lets you get familiar with new places and people.
It's going to take some extra time and effort, but you can work with a provider (think travel agent for study abroad) to land a spot at colleges and universities around the world.
