Additional considerations when choosing program may include:
MU students study abroad in their freshman, sophomore, junior and senior years. Given the demands of the application process, all students should begin researching programs at least one full semester prior to the study abroad application deadline. With advance planning, students in nearly all MU departments are able to study abroad without delaying graduation. Begin looking into program options now.
Exchange: Programs that allow a limited number of MU students to study at a foreign university for a cost comparable to full tuition and fees at MU. Exchange programs are often the most affordable options for study abroad but do require a great deal of independence on the part of the student. Often students must navigate matters from registering for courses to finding housing with little assistance from the host university.
Internship: Programs that consist of significant internship-for-credit opportunities. Internships generally are not paid.
MU faculty-led: Programs led or accompanied by MU faculty or staff. These programs are organized by either an academic department at MU or the MU International Center.
