Are you interested in doing study abroad?

The first thing you should do is visit the International Center for information about the basics of planning a study abroad semester, summer, or year.


Study Abroad Photo Contest Submission 2012

You should plan your experience about a year prior to the time you would like the study abroad to take place.  The Study Abroad Office can help you pick out what classes are available at your intended location.  The next step (in terms of course work) is to have the faculty advisor in that area (i. e. French faculty advisor if it is a French language class) sign off on your form indicating how the course transfers to U of L.  After you have that information - please visit the A&S Advisor assigned to your major to find out how those classes will apply to your particular degree.
Please see for further information or call (502) 852-6602;
email us at:; or stop by at International Center, Brodschi Hall, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40292.

The International Center/ Study Abroad Office ( advises students on all third-party (managed outside of U of L) study abroad programs.  These offerings stretch from the short term summer and winterbreak programs, to semester and full year programs in universities around the world.
