Extended deadline

Due to the corona situation, the photo contest deadline has been extended till 1 June 2020. Submit your photo and you could win a great prize!

Have you been abroad for study-related activities in fall 2019 or spring 2020? Do you think you have captured the theme of this contest in your photos? If so, take part in the Study Abroad photo contest.

Theme: ‘The World is Your Classroom’  

The theme of the contest is ‘The World is Your Classroom’.
