Have you ever wondered what America or American culture looks like from another country's perspective? One of the best ways to learn more about yourself and the world around you is to live overseas! As a U-M student, you have free access to many of the best resources available for arranging studies, work, internships, and volunteering overseas.
With careful planning, nearly every student can fit study abroad into a four-year undergraduate program. Offering more than 80 programs in 41 countries, the International Center, and Global Michigan are good places to start your journey. Looking for something more short-term? Check out the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS).
