Faculty-led programs include May Term and Summer programs that range from three to 10 weeks, serve a large number of majors, and span the entire globe. On a faculty-led program, you are part of a group of UT students who take a course abroad led by a UT faculty member.
Both immersive and intensive, short term faculty-led programs give students an in-depth look at subjects such as biotechnology in Singapore, global health in Costa Rica, government policy in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and documentary photography in Ireland.
May Term Faculty-Led Programs
May Term Faculty-Led programs feature courses that take place during the May sub-term of the spring semester. Any undergraduate student enrolled fulltime will not pay additional tuition for their course taught on a May Term Abroad program. Additionally, May Term Abroad credits are not counted towards the 17-credit maximum course enrollment limit.

Special Discounted Tuition Rates

Undergraduate Texas resident and non-Texas resident tuition will be offered at a reduced rate of 25 percent off fall and spring semester costs, so a three credit hour course results in a tuition rate of $500 for Texas residents and $2,000 for non-Texas students.
