Study Abroad

The University of Iowa sponsors a wide variety of study abroad programs in approximately 50 countries throughout the world. Students may choose from summer, fall, or spring semester, academic year, spring break, and winter session programs that complement and extend the university's academic programs across the curriculum.

Study Abroad offers programs to appeal to a broad range of majors and interests. Major Advising Pages (MAPs) are created to help students better understand how study abroad can fit into their programs of study. The program search engine, Search UI Study Abroad Programs, allows students to browse information about study abroad programs.

Students also can participate in study abroad programs sponsored by other accredited U.S. and international institutions. They should obtain advance approval of all transfer credit by completing a Study Abroad Credit Approval Form.
