Types of Study Abroad Programs

We offer several study abroad options to help you enrich your ASU college experience.

Given the evolving and unpredictable situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to suspend all plans for study abroad in 2021 to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. This decision was not made quickly or lightly, and we all share the disappointment that our students will not have the opportunity to experience the many things that study abroad has to offer.

You may choose to study abroad during the summer terms or choose one of our semester or academic year programs.

Study Abroad Programs are Open to Students of All Majors

Semester and Academic Year Programs

Semester programs are a good option for undergraduate students who want to study abroad for three to four months. These programs offer a greater selection of coursework, and students are not accompanied by faculty directors. Skills in languages other than English may be required.
