Academic Programs (Study Abroad)

In our global economy, effective cross-cultural communication skills are essential for student success. As a result, many universities wish to offer their students an international study experience. However, it is often difficult to fit a traditional year abroad program into regular studies. The answer to this is a Customized Academic Group Program at the University of Washington. While studying abroad, your students will expand their view of the world, improve their English and prepare for their careers.

Note: At this time, our Customized Academic Group Programs are only available to students who are at least 18 years old by the time the program begins (or are 17 years old and have graduated from high school).
