Welcome to the UO Study Abroad Programs website! We are very pleased to work with your UO student as they plan for their study abroad or global internship experience. This experience represents a wonderful opportunity for them to grow, academically as well as personally. Along those lines, we ask that you help us ensure that they receive the fullest possible benefit by encouraging them to take the lead in planning their study abroad or global internship experience. In this section, we include some suggestions for constructive ways for you to be involved and supportive as well as indicating some areas in which the students must complete the steps themselves. We also highlight certain key information often requested by parents and families.
In the rest of this website, we have assembled extensive information about the more than 170 study abroad programs sponsored by the University of Oregon. Please feel free to explore this and other areas of our website, and please let us know (or have your UO student ask us) if there is anything else that you would like to know.
“My student is considering a study abroad experience. What do I need to know?”
“What can I do to help my child study in the program? And what actions must the students themselves take?”
There is a great deal of support that you can provide for the student in your life as they move through the process of selecting, applying for and preparing for their study abroad experience.
