Outside of standard UVM study abroad programs, UVM students travel all over the world to attend conferences, do research, complete internships and clinical rotations, and many other international endeavors. To receive approval to travel internationally, UVM students are required to complete paperwork in GoAbroad. 

If your international activity fits into any of the below categories, you need to complete paperwork in GoAbroad to receive UVM approval to travel internationally:

  • An independent internship abroad, funded (in part/whole) by UVM and/or bearing UVM credit
  • A College of Medicine international elective
  • Undergraduate student research abroad, funded (in part/whole) by UVM and/or bearing UVM credit
  • Graduate student research abroad, funded (in part/whole) by UVM and/or bearing UVM credit
  • Any independent travel that is funded in part or whole by UVM (for example, competition or conference participation)
  • Going abroad as part of a club that receives SGA funding
  • Any independent travel supported by UVM (e.g., a UVM faculty member directed you to participate in this experience)
