Want to spend a full semester or year abroad? If so, you can apply to be an exchange student at one of our partner universities in Asia or Europe, or enroll in a program offered through our provider network. For shorter-term options, consider one of our faculty-led travel-study courses.
Most programs are aimed at undergraduates, but graduate students can participate in short-term travel-study, service learning programs, and overseas internships. Whatever your degree program, you’ll meet new people, see the world from a different perspective, and learn about your host country’s history and culture.
And the benefits don’t stop when you return home. Your experience gives you insights into global issues and challenges, which can help you stand out to potential employers.
Before you pack your bags, you’ll need to do some planning. In most cases, you’ll need to start the process at least a semester ahead. Our Study Abroad Office will guide you through the process.
