Travel Study Opportunities for International Institute Students

The UCLA International Education Office (IEO) serves as the campus-wide gateway to international education by developing, publicizing, and administering the following study abroad and student exchange programs. 

***Once you have determined which study abroad program you are most interested in, be sure to meet with the Academic Counselor for your Academic Program to discuss how the courses might apply towards your International Institute major or minor requirements.***

Education Abroad Program (EAP)

The Education Abroad Program (EAP) offers study abroad programs exclusively for UC students. Use the UC EAP Program Wizard to search for EAP programs using such criteria such as country, subject area, language of instruction, and length of program.  Use the UC EAP Coursefinder to search for courses that have previously been taken for UC credit by former students. This is a great way to preview potential course offerings to help determine if they relate to your major requirements.


Non-UC Study Abroad Programs

Accredited programs give transfer credit (units only, no grades). Courses must be petitioned upon return.

Students can also choose to go through other study abroad programs besides the abovementioned UC sponsored programs. The International Education keeps information and offers individual counseling regarding hundreds of non-UC study abroad opportunities.
