The first step is imagining where in the world you would like to go! Would you like to develop a regional specialty, build language skills, live and take classes in a particular setting (the tropics, a mountainous region)? Next you can begin to explore options through the Office of International Education (OIE) and by talking to your academic advisor.
Study abroad experiences can be tailored to fit your schedule. Student may choose to study abroad:
- For a full semester, usually by taking courses at another university or program.
- By undertaking a summer study abroad experience which might be through UVM or through another institution
- By participating in a Faculty Led Study/Travel course over a 2-week winter recess or during a summer session.
The Office of International Education is the first place to visit before you study abroad. This office has a staff of study abroad advisors to assist you, a library of information on a wide variety of programs, and comment sheets from UVM students who describe their own study abroad experiences.
