Program Types

Utah State University offers a few different options for students to study abroad. Depending on the length of time you'd like to spend, your budget, and your educational goals, there's a study abroad program for you!
  • Faculty-Led Programs -- Join USU faculty for short-term programs all over the globe! Faculty-led programs may be between 10 days and 8 weeks, and all offer USU coursework enhanced by the destinations and hands-on learning of study abroad. 
  • Exchanges -- USU has partnerships with universities around the world and the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP) network to offer summer, semester or year studies to USU students. The exchange arrangement allows students to pay tuition and fees directly to USU, and students exchange places with incoming exchange students from partner universities. This model ranks as one of the most affordable options for study abroad. 
  • Direct Programs -- In addition to our exchange partners and the ISEP exchange program, USU students may also choose to study with direct study abroad providers. These programs offer opportunities for study, volunteer, or internships. Program fees are set by each provider, and there are numerous options for semester, academic year or summer study abroad. Students are still able to use USU financial aid, scholarships and grants toward the direct provider program fees.
