Study Abroad

Welcome to Study Abroad

The University of Delaware launched America's first study abroad program in 1923 and celebrated a milestone 90th anniversary in 2013.

Expand your global perspective by participating in a UD Study Abroad program. The Institute for Global Studies (IGS) coordinates about 100 programs annually, with a specialization in short term, faculty-led programs. Courses are available from an array of disciplines and fulfill a variety of requirements. Semester-long and exchange programs are also available for students looking to gain more cultural immersion and, if relevant to their course of study, greater language acquisition. Browse our database of programs to see where your next academic adventure may be.

Study Abroad Advisement Hours

For those who have more questions about study abroad, IGS offers drop-in advising hours throughout the fall and spring semesters on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 3:00p.m. (excluding University breaks and holidays).

Students can stop by the second floor of Clayton Hall during advisement hours to talk to the on-call study abroad coordinator, discuss their study abroad goals, get help in selecting the best program, and to learn more about the general application process. No appointment is necessary.
For those who have already decided on a specific program, visit that program’s interest meeting.
