Rubenstein students have studied in countries from A-Z — Argentina to Zimbabwe, that is.
For semester or year long study abroad opportunities, students should initially visit the UVM Office of International Education (OIE) to learn about the great variety of study abroad programs. For additional advisement on study abroad, contact Anna Smiles-Becker in Aiken 220G. Also, check out this searchable list of opportunities that Anna has emailed to students.
NOTE: If you intend to utilize credit obtained from courses taken at institutions or programs outside of UVM to satisfy requirements for your RSENR major, it is imperative that you meet with your advisor well in advance and ensure - in writing - that credits you intend to transfer back to UVM will in fact meet specific major requirements in your program. Note that you may not substitute a course taken at another institution or program for a major or RSENR core course requirement without first having an approved waiver from the appropriate curriculum committee. Please see Anna-Smiles Becker or your advisor if you have any questions about these requirements.
