Make an appointment with a study abroad advisor
to discuss your interests and options!
You can also explore our website to find out more about the many study abroad programs offered by CU Denver’s Office of Global Education. We have two semester programs abroad as well as a variety of short-term study abroad opportunities called Global
Study programs. These are CU Denver courses taught abroad by CU Denver faculty, and take place during the winter break, Maymester, and throughout the summer. These programs are a great affordable option for students to study abroad!
If the short-term or semester programs offered by our office do not fit your desires or academic needs, third-party providers offer programs all over the world, for any major, at a wide range of prices. You can view our featured third-party provider programs on our wesbite.
Some questions to consider when choosing a study abroad program:
A. Academic and personal objectives: What would you like to get out of your experience abroad? What would you like to study? Do you want to take courses specific to your major or finish up core requirements? Do you want to learn about the culture? Do
you want to study a language?
B. Other important factors to think about: cost, living arrangements (i.e. student apartment, host family, dorm, etc.), what is included (i.e. excursions, food, etc.), what type of a city you are interested in (i.e. a large city or a small city), your
ability to speak the local language (although fluency in a foreign language is not required and courses are often taught in English, this is a great way to practice learning a new language), and duration.
You may apply independently to foreign universities to study abroad. However, in order to receive credit from that university, you will need to apply with CU Denver’s Office of Global Education.
Whether you have chosen a program or still need help deciding, be sure to make an appointment to talk about next steps!
