Education Abroad


So Many Choices!

Programs by Type

Once you have a good understanding of what you want from your study abroad experience, use the descriptions on our program pages to make a list of the programs that interest you. Students are permitted to choose either a University of Rochester-sponsored program or a non-UR study aboard program offered by another US university or institution.

You may wish to consider as many as ten to twelve programs and make your final choice on where to apply once you have examined them all. Unless you have special circumstances, don't apply to more than three programs. Depending on your GPA and the admission requirements of the programs you choose, you may be able to apply to just one program. Talk this over with a study abroad adviser.

Catalogs and applications for UR-sponsored programs are available at the Center for Study Abroad. For programs sponsored by other colleges and universities, you may request catalogues and applications by phone or online.
