Education Abroad

Web site:

The Education Abroad Office connects students from all majors and programs with international study, exchange, service and internship opportunities on six of the seven continents at hundreds of locations around the globe. Students earn UW credit towards major, minor or general education requirements on academic year, semester, summer and faculty-led short-term programs. The Education Abroad Office is located on the first floor of the Cheney International Center.

UW students with a minimum 2.750 GPA are eligible to apply to participate on a wide variety of credit-bearing programs outside of the U.S. The Education Abroad Office staff advises students individually to tailor the program to students’ specific needs. Considerations are made for cost, financial aid opportunities, transfer of credit, health and safety, degree completion, country or region desired, and foreign language requirements.

In addition to learning about other cultures in depth and perfecting foreign language skills, studying abroad can be a life changing experience. Students return home with altered perspectives by developing flexibility and critical thinking skills. Students gain a greater sense of what it is to be an American, what it is to be a citizen of the world, and who they are individually.  Studying abroad can help students clarify life and professional goals which leads to the development of greater direction, focus, and motivation for the remaining years of their university life and beyond.
