School of Undergraduate Studies
An international program is a great way to enhance your academic experience. Opportunities include classes, research, service-learning and internships. Students can use these experiences to broaden their education, expand their expertise and strengthen their portfolio as they launch their careers.
In order to have the best experience abroad, it is recommended that students meet with their academic advisor early in their undergraduate career. Be sure to review the resources on the Education Abroad pages, including the funding resources page and the events calendar.
Many majors require you to meet proficiency in a foreign language. Use the program search to find programs by country, semester, language, or by area of study. Students can fulfill core and flag requirements abroad via petition. For more information, view the Texas Undergraduate Studies petitions page. Remember to use the My Credit Abroad database to explore the historical record of courses other UT students have taken abroad.
Questions about credit? Review the Study Abroad Credit page for more information about receiving academic credit while abroad.
