Study Abroad Opportunities for Graduate Students
A few of the nearly 400 study abroad programs approved by the University of Colorado Boulder offer graduate credit, as do occasional programs offered by other US institutions. However, earning graduate credit on study abroad programs is the exception rather than the rule.
Advisors in the Study Abroad Programs office can advise you about which CU-Boulder study abroad programs offer credit at the graduate level. Some programs are exchanges where you pay tuition and fees here and trade places with a student from your host institution abroad. Other programs are one-way study abroad programs (where no one comes here in your place). You can see a list of programs offering graduate-level credit here: http://studyabroad.colorado.edu/?go=GraduateProgram.
Students interested in exploring programs that are not approved by CU-Boulder can do so at http://studyabroad.colorado.edu/?go=NonApprovedPrograms. Departmental advisors and faculty may know of specialized programs in their own disciplines and can be an excellent resource.
Keep in mind that graduate students work under considerably different regulations than undergraduates, and these regulations change the conditions for overseas study. Financial considerations are also different, as are possibilities for fellowships or scholarships.
Additional information about study abroad opportunities and other intern or work related opportunities can be found on the Office of Intentional Education website: http://www.colorado.edu/OIE/admin/graduateopps.html.
Note: Graduate students do not need to attend Study Abroad 101 before meeting with a Study Abroad Advisor in our office.
