Semester & Academic Year Study Abroad

Studying abroad for a semester or academic year allows you to begin adapting to a different culture and new way of daily life. Maintain status as a full-time student and make progress towards graduation. There are opportunities for every degree plan to fulfill major, minor, and core requirements.

We suggest you start exploring semester/year program options a year in advance. A shorter timetable is possible, but studying abroad is a big investment - allow space to prepare! Review tips on How to Choose a Program, watch a First Step Session, and take the time to find the option that’s right for you.

Application processes vary by program type. Visit program pages for more information.
