Study Abroad Programs

The University of Missouri-St. Louis is committed to broadening students' understanding of different cultures and preparing them for the global community in which we live. One of the most successful ways of achieving this "global mindset" is to study at an overseas location for a year, semester or summer. Spending time abroad as a student is an enriching experience both academically and personally, providing students with the opportunity to study within a different culture.

The Center for International Studies provides UM-St. Louis students with opportunities to study at over 75 different universities  in more than 30 countries around the globe. Through individual advising at the center's Study Abroad Office, students can find the program best suited to their personal, academic, and career goals. Internship possibilities are also available for qualified students.

Fees and Financial Aid
The cost of the program depends on the services provided and the country and city of study. For most programs, participants continue to pay UM-St. Louis fees plus airfare, room and board, and spending money. Few programs require an additional fee. Students are usually housed in dormitories or are assisted in finding apartments. In most cases, students are able to apply financial aid to a study abroad program. Study abroad scholarships are available for qualified applicants through the Center for International Studies.

Generally, applications are due at the end of January for fall, mid-February for summer, and the end of September for winter semester. Some programs require application two semesters prior to participation. Students should plan to spend at least one or two months researching a program before applying.
Participant selection is based on academic achievement, faculty recommendations, approval of the proposed course of study via the department/divisional advisory process, and familiarity with or willingness to learn the foreign language of instruction. Most programs are designed for undergraduate students in their junior or senior years of study; however, a limited number of programs for freshmen, sophomores, and graduate students are available.
