Studying abroad can enrich an understanding of your own religious beliefs while providing an opportunity to engage with other religions. As you determine what study abroad will look like for you, it is important to explore questions of religion:
Questions to Consider
- How will my religious beliefs interact with the dominant religious identity?
- How can I practice my religion? Are there places of worship? How accessible are they?
- What are the cultural attitudes towards religion and spirituality?
- What are the laws about religion? How intertwined is religion with politics?
- If I have religious dietary restrictions, will they be accommodated?
- If I have religious housing accommodation needs, what kinds of housing options are available?
