Welcome to IU

It is never never early to start thinking about the study abroad opportunities that await you at IU! As you settle on a major and start planning your academic career, consider how an international experience can benefit your studies and your career development.

  • Talk to your academic advisor about your interest in studying abroad during your career at IU.
  • Come into our office and talk with a study abroad advisor about program options related to your major.
  • Start planning financially for your study abroad program.

Visit Our Exploratory Center

This fall, we opened the "Overseas Study Exploratory Center" in the new Global and International Studies building, Room 1032. The center is ideal for a quiet chat with a study abroad advisor (10-noon) or peer counselor (12-3pm) and to begin your search for a study abroad program. The center is open weekdays while classes are in session.

Say "Hello!"

to one of our Peer Counselors at our office (10am-4pm, weekdays), or when you see them tabling around campus. They have recently returned from studying abroad and can tell you all about their experience or how to start planning your own international experience!
