The University of Connecticut offers over 300 study abroad programs in 65 countries on six continents. You can study as far away as China or as close as Mexico, in a small village in the desert or on a large ship at sea. You might take courses at a university in Ireland, Korea, or Chile; intern at a non-profit in South Africa, Guatemala, or England; conduct field research in Armenia, Mongolia, or the Netherlands; or study with UConn students in Italy, France, or Spain--just as examples. Best of all, you can spend a winter, summer, semester or year abroad and still graduate on time. Begin your journey by exploring our site using the navigation links on this page. You will find online brochures for each program, instructions on how to apply using our online application system, and other information to help you embark on what promises to be one of the most transformative experiences of your life.
Studying abroad is a great way to gain proficiency in another language and to experience a new culture. There is no better way to learn about yourself, expand your worldview, acquire marketable skills, and, importantly, develop the habits of mind and action that will prepare you to tackle the global issues facing our time.
