In 2019, The University of Texas at Austin sent more than 4,400 Longhorns around the world and brought over 8,000 international students and scholars to the Forty Acres, ranking the university at No. 3 in the country for study abroad participation and one of the top global universities in the world. Texas Global is proud to play a central role in developing a more connected university, bringing together scholars and students from more than 100 countries. Although it’s impossible to quantify all the ways international education enriches our campus, the following 12 extraordinary photos taken by Longhorns around the world highlight invaluable international experiences and represent UT’s vibrant global community.
After reviewing hundreds of photo submissions from international students, scholars and Longhorns who have studied, researched or interned abroad, we selected these stunning scenes to represent the impact of international experience in the 2020 Texas Global calendar. These images simultaneously capture the ordinary details and the unique qualities of places across the world. It’s the experience of that duality that makes international education so valuable, when zooming in broadens your perspective.
