Semester Abroad - Gain International Experience

foto tu mismo Going abroad for a semester or a year provides you with meaningful international experience and is an invaluable investment in your future. You can go abroad for a semester and still graduate on time. Check our featured programs in the table below. Program costs can be very reasonable and plentfy of financial support opportunities are available.

Some are labeled EXCHANGE because you will pay tuition/fees at WIU while studying in an international program, and international students will pay tuition in their home institution and come to WIU.

Others are labeled DIRECT because you pay tuition/fees  directly to academic institutions abroad, and your WIU tuition/fees are waived. Sometimes these programs can be similar to the cost of studying here at WIU.
