The Monthly Magnet Review: October

The second BCHS Magnet meeting of the year was held on Oct. 31. Brenna Sherril from the Study Abroad and Global Learning Office at Western Kentucky University came to BCHS to share information to students about the program at WKU.


Sherril explained some of the benefits of studying abroad, such as gaining marketable skills and having more hands-on experiences. While studying abroad, many options are available, such as: internships, international student teaching, learning and academic studies.


Funding is typically an issue associated with studying abroad; however, WKU offers varied program costs depending on the location. Transferrable WKU financial aid and merit are also available.


WKU faculty-led programs are taught by WKU professors and are usually held during the summer or winter. They are affordable and include a variety of locations with major-specific and general education courses. WKU also has an exchange partner program with locations around the globe. The courses are taught in English and have affordable semester-long and summer programs.

Any questions about WKU’s study abroad program can be answered by visiting their website at or by contacting the Study Abroad and Global Learning Office at or (270) 745-5334. Any questions about the meeting can be answered by contacting Magnet Principal Letitia Hughes.
