Distinguish Yourself: Take your Education Abroad

In this Section

Hundreds of UW-Stout students take their education abroad every year. The Study Abroad Team is here to help you explore the many options available:

  • Exchange – Pay UW-Stout tuition to attend a partner university abroad (Semester or Academic Year)
  • National Student Exchange – Study in the U.S., its territories, or Canada and pay UW-Stout tuition (Semester or Academic Year)
  • Direct Enroll – Pay a university abroad or a study abroad provider directly (Semester, Academic Year, WinTerm, or Summer)
  • Faculty-led – Study on a short-term domestic or international program with a UW-Stout professor (WinTerm, Spring, or Summer)
  • Internship or Co-op – Gain valuable international work experience (Semester, Academic Year, or Summer)

“By far the best decision I made at UW-Stout. I hope as many students as possible take advantage."

- Study abroad alumnus, University of Westminster - United Kingdom

A higher GPA, a better graduation rate, and a larger income are all associated with study abroad. You can gain these very real benefits while you also meet a variety of people, establish a global network for future jobs or internships, take classes that will satisfy major, minor, or general education requirements, perhaps learn a new language, and build a resume that will set you apart from 90% of other college students -- that's right, just 10% of university students study abroad, so why not distinguish yourself by studying abroad as part of your education at UW-Stout? 

“The experience has made me more confident personally and professionally.”
