Thousands of exciting and educational study abroad opportunities are available to you. You can study abroad for the summer, for a semester or year, or take one of our many short-term programs offered in May term and during winter break. Use the links here to explore your possibilities.
We encourage you to strongly consider UMD programs as we work hard at keeping costs down and quality up. This will become noticeable to you as you begin making comparisons. If the UMD programs are not for you, then we advise you to explore University of Minnesota system programs. The University of Minnesota Morris, University of Minnesota Crookston and University of Minnesota Twin Cities offer quality programs throughout the world. If you don't find what you want through these programs, click on world-wide opportunities to explore hundreds of other offerings.
Want other reasons to study abroad through a UMD or another University of Minnesota program? Scholarship opportunities! The UM system offers many scholarship possibilities. Some scholarships apply to UM system programs only. In addition, receiving course equivalent approval for UMD courses is much more likely when studying through the UM system since the study abroad program has already been approved.
