Hello from International Programs and Exchanges!
Are you interested in studying abroad for a semester or a year on a UW exchange program? We are currently accepting applications for programs beginning in winter and spring 2015. Exchange program participants earn UW credit for their coursework overseas and are able to use UW financial aid and scholarships towards program costs.
If you would like to escape the dreary Seattle winter, why not apply for a program in Australia or New Zealand (it’s summer there!)? We have six partner universities in Australia and two in New Zealand. In addition to coursework in humanities and social sciences, these programs are also well suited to STEM majors.
Popular programs in Asia include the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), National Taiwan University, Yonsei University and Seoul National University in Korea, and numerous partner schools in Japan (including Kyoto University, Osaka University, Keio University, Aoyama Gakuin University and Tokyo Institute of Technology). Courses in English are offered at all of these universities.
Of course, exchange programs exist all over the world, from South Africa to Poland and everywhere in between. Whatever the case, we think that you’ll find an exchange to be one of the most challenging, rewarding, and transformative experiences in study abroad.
If you have questions, please contact us by e-mail or stop by 459 Schmitz Hall. We have drop-in advising from 10am-4pm daily. To explore programs or start an application, visit studyabroad.washington.edu.
We look forward to receiving your application!
