A UNCG student in good standing may spend a summer, semester, or academic year abroad in several ways.

Academic Year and Semester Abroad Programs

  • UNCG Exchange Programs. Through various exchange agreements, a UNCG student may swap places with a student in another country. Under these arrangements, students study abroad for approximately the cost of being in residence at UNCG. Students can choose from over ninety exchange partner programs in more than forty-five countries. Examples of our partner program locations include Australia, Botswana, Canada, Chile, China, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
  • The University of North Carolina Exchange Programs (UNC-EP). Through this UNC program (headquartered at UNCG), UNCG is able to place students in any of fifty-four countries overseas. These programs are available through either UNC-EP negotiated exchange agreements or through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), a Virginia-based exchange organization. The cost of such study is about the same as being in residence at UNCG.
  • Semester Abroad Programs. UNCG offers other study abroad semester programs to several countries including India and Russia. Although not student exchange programs, these study abroad options are nonetheless less costly than study abroad opportunities offered through most other providers.
  • Non-UNCG Programs. A UNCG student may spend a summer, semester, or year abroad under the auspices of a group or institution approved by the UNCG Study Abroad Committee. While generally more costly than ISEP or the UNCG programs, this option may be of interest to students seeking particular experiences not otherwise available.

Short-term Faculty-led Summer Abroad Programs

UNCG professors regularly lead student groups overseas. Over the past few years, groups have gone to such countries as Costa Rica, France, Greece, Spain, United Kingdom, and Zambia. These programs generally involve five or six weeks of supervised travel and study in the summer or for shorter periods throughout the year.
