Blog of the Week: @BROAD

GoAbroad Blog of the WeekIt’s Friday — and time for GoAbroad’s Blog of the Week! This week’s selection is:


This week’s selected blog comes from Sarah McNitt and features international education and travel-related links, photos, quotes and pieces of interest–all with the purpose of getting travelers excited about going abroad themselves! As a study abroad advisor, Sarah enjoys spreading the word about studying, traveling, working and living abroad, and the @BROAD blog encompasses this vision with a creative twist. If you’re in search of an insider’s perspective on international education, @BROAD has the inspiration and resources you’ll need to get started.

Why We Love It

Rather than rely on text-heavy posts, @BROAD features interesting content through the mediums of photography, quotes and links to useful resources, such as the recent International Education Week address from U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. This clever approach to inspiring travelers and students interested in international education makes the @BROAD blog engaging and easily shared with others. The resources provided also range from famous faces who have studied abroad to ways you can afford a study abroad program. No matter what kind of traveler you may be, or what kind of international education program you’re in search of, @BROAD will motivate your inner explorer to take action and seek further information!

If it’s a travel-themed challenge you’re after, consider mirroring the “15 Day International Travel Challenge” that Sarah created on @BROAD–or you can let it encourage you to create your own travel challenges. The choice is yours!

Check out the @BROAD blog for more travel inspiration and explore for all your study abroad program options!

Every week GoAbroad features an abroad-related blog as our selection for Blog of the Week. The featured blog has been chosen because it features interesting and well-written abroad or travel-related experiences.

    If you are a student planning on travelling abroad to attend school, then you will need to be covered whilst you are away from your home country with international student travel health insurance.You absolutely cannot take the risk that you may not need insurance when on international travel!
