External Program Options

Programs offered by external providers include all types of experiences abroad, from short-term guided tours, to full academic years embedded in host communities. Students on these programs study in some of the most popular destinations for study abroad in Western Europe, but many options are available further from the beaten path in places like Nepal, Iceland, or Rwanda.

External providers offer many services to students, including insurance coverage, housing placement, visa processing, and on-site staff to support students while abroad. Many programs include planned excursions and cultural activities included in the program fees. All details (courses, housing, costs, dates, etc.) can generally be found on the external program website or by contacting the program provider.

When exploring this long list of options, the Office of Study Abroad is here to guide you. We can help you review your priorities- location, classes, program duration, costs – and direct you towards providers and programs that best suit you as an individual. Our external program advisor will walk you through the application process and make sure you have everything in order to get overseas!
