A faculty-directed study abroad program is a University of Kentucky course designed and led by UK faculty or staff. These programs provide students with the chance to engage in immersive learning experiences, combining traditional classroom instruction with hands-on activities and cultural exploration. The guidance of the faculty members ensures academic continuity while enabling students to gain firsthand insights into different cultures and environments, fostering personal growth and a deeper understanding of global perspectives.

Faculty-Directed Programs:

  • Guided by UK Faculty on-site
  • Participate with UK Peers
  • Short term programs: Winter, Summer
  • Earn UK credit that counts towards your UK GPA 

UK also offers multiple programs through our partner and exchange programs that offer a variety of locations and credit offerings
