Study Abroad with KU

Since the 1950s, KU has promoted international exchange as a vital link in education. A national leader in providing low-cost, high-quality study abroad programs, KU offers semester, academic year, summer, winter break and spring break programs in more than 60 countries around the world. These vary in structure from exchanges and individually arranged programs to group programs led by KU faculty.

Study abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with benefits that extend far beyond academic learning. Students who study abroad develop skills in intercultural communication and problem-solving that apply to everyday life. Students learn to become independent and take initiative. They often gain self-confidence, flexibility, perseverance, and appreciation of diversity. International experience also strengthens career opportunities and increases awareness of today's interconnected world. These opportunities are organized through KU's Office of Study Abroad.
