About Veteran Study Abroad

Veteran Study Abroad (VSA) is a veteran-run program created to assist all United States military veterans with studying at overseas universities, free of charge. Our goal is to make sure veterans have a plan in place for their future, maximizing their chance of success after separation. Education is one of the best ways to transition from military life, and we hope that our services will help make this process exciting and stress-free for our veterans.

We assist veterans with all aspects of studying overseas. These services include assistance with university and visa applications, booking flights, as well as finding accommodation. Whatever you can think of in the process, we help you. We handle mostly everything for you so you don’t have to worry about speaking with universities or their admissions teams. Basically, all you have to do is call, text or email us, give us specific information, and then we handle it all for you.

Currently, we assist military veterans with studying at universities within the United Kingdom. Every country is different and has its own visa regulations. We have decided to take a focused approach on which countries we work with, starting with the United Kingdom. We will add further countries in the future. Please feel free to join our mailing list to be updated when new countries have been added: VSA Mailing List.
