As a UK student, you can study abroad during any term starting the summer after your freshman year. Important factors, like your major, degree plan and progress, budget, and campus involvement, are important factors to determine when and where to study abroad. Early planning will give you more flexibility in program and location choice. Use your Major Advising Page to kickstart your planning process and navigate conversations with your academic and education abroad advisors, as well as your support network and other campus contacts.
