Types of Programs

The chart below provides information about different types of education abroad programs. With the exception of Exchange Programs, each type may be found on UR and non-UR programs. The type of program that’s best for you will depend upon your academic needs and interests. For example, exchange and other direct enrollment options are usually best for STEM students. Island programs are great if you’d like to study in a place where you don’t have proficiency in the host country language.
