Study Abroad Photo Contest

“I’m immensely happy that I made the decision to study abroad at University College Dublin during the spring 2019 semester. I had the opportunity to experience a whole new educational system and national culture, make a new set of friends, and see parts of the world and hear viewpoints that I never would’ve gotten the chance to otherwise.” – Caroline Tien '20

Each year more than 130 Haverford students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.

The 2019 Study Abroad Photo Contest first-place winner in the Places category: Rachel Brodie '19, The Devil's Bridge, Kromlau, Germany.
