Famous People Who Studied Abroad


This is an ongoing project I’ve been working on, to list fictional and real-life people who have spent time studying in other countries. I try to restrict myself to those who traveled specifically for the purpose of study (as opposed to immigrating with family) but I’m not always consistent. If you see any errors or want to suggest anyone I’ve missed, get in touch! If you’d like to be updated when people are added to the list, you can follow the blog on Tumblr, add the RSS feed to your preferred feed reader or Like my Facebook page.
