We Make Cross-Border Learning a Priority
DU is among the top 5 U.S. institutions of its type for the percentage of undergraduate students who study abroad!
Going abroad is often the single most memorable and rewarding experience of your college career. DU has many program types to consider, which fulfill different needs for different students. Our goal is to guide you through finding the best program for you and to prepare you to experience the transformative power of global learning. The Office of International Education (OIE) supports your international education through our comprehensive advising throughout your journey to study abroad.
How We Support You
The OIE has peer advisors who will help guide you through understanding the different types of study abroad programs and considerations to consider when selecting a program.
Our Study Abroad Program Managers are study abroad professional advisors. If you're unsure of where to go, how to get there, or what it will be like, we have an advisor ready to answer your questions.
Study Abroad Handbook
If you're looking for more detailed information you should review the Study Abroad handbook. If you're already planning to go abroad, make sure that you've read through the Study Abroad Handbook so that you're aware of all standards, expectations, and resources.
YOU Can Afford Study Abroad
DU stands out, because the study abroad experience and how it is financed is unlike most universities. At DU, studying abroad doesn't have to be more expensive than staying at DU. If you plan ahead, few locations are out of reach, even with a limited budget. You need to be realistic about how cost-of-living varies around the world, but that can work in your favor. Sometimes, it's even possible to save money by studying abroad!
In the spirit of the commitment of the Cherrington Global Scholars (CGS) initiative, it is our hope that financial constraints never be the sole reason that a student is not able to study abroad. If you are aware that finances will be a challenge for you, let your OIE advisor know these concerns early on in the advising process and we will do our best to find a program that fits your budget.
Graduate students may choose to participate in a variety of DU and non-DU study abroad programs. Each graduate department has its own policies regarding the transfer of study abroad credit, so the first step should be to speak with your academic advisor regarding your program's policies and the number/type of study abroad credits you may earn towards your degree.
