Study Abroad

Study Abroad Programs

The University of Delaware offers a variety of travel study programs throughout the academic year.  By definition, “travel study” involves enrolling in courses for academic credit.  Scholarships are available for full-time UD undergraduate students accepted to UD travel study programs. Students enrolling at UD as World Scholars study abroad as first-semester freshmen and, again, in their junior year.



Browse our program database by "Academic Session" or “Country” if you are looking to study abroad during a particular term or in a specific location.  Browse by “Course” or “Requirement” to see which programs would fulfill your academic needs.
