As an engineering student, going abroad is a great opportunity to explore new cultures while learning at partner institutions from around the world. To find out a little more about the study abroad process, check out the Getting Started page.
With many study abroad programs to choose from, the Engineers Abroad Search Tool can be helpful to filter through the different institutions that UVA engineering undergraduates have studied at in the past. You can also find courses students have taken organized by major and country on the Academics page. The Programs page is where you'll find study abroad options for different terms, including fall and spring, summer, and January terms, as well as internship opportunities. There are many faculty-led abroad programs to choose from, particularly in the summer and during the January term!
