Studying Abroad can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling experiences you can have as a student. Not only can you see the world for yourself, you can also earn credit towards graduation. Study abroad is available year-round: Summer, Fall, Winter break, Spring…it can be as short as a week or as long as a year at a time! There is something for everyone and every major or minor. You don’t need to know a foreign language to study abroad but there are many places that offer the opportunity to build on your language skills.
Each year hundreds of University of Louisville undergraduates study abroad. The process begins by meeting with the Study Abroad Advisor who will direct you to the appropriate offices on campus. Your study abroad advisor will discuss with you the options that best fit your academic requirements, career, personal goals, and budget.If you start planning your freshman year you could study abroad multiple times -- the more time you have to plan, the more study abroad options there will be!
Our goal here at the Office of Study Abroad and International Travel is to guide you through the study abroad process by providing you with information about the various study abroad program options available to U of L students, by discussing scholarship opportunities and diverse academic, cultural, and linguistic experiences.
