Where do you want to go?
Welcome to UAF's Office of International Programs and Initiatives! UAF offers hundreds of national and international exchange, study abroad, and international internship opportunities all over the US and the world!You can earn UAF academic credit while you're away, which may apply to your degree program. From a few weeks in the summer to a semester or two, or more, you'll find a program that works for you. You can even go on more than one program, both nationally and abroad! While some programs do have foreign language requirements, many others are taught in English and/or offer beginning-level langauge courses as well. Costs depend on the program and location, but you can use most financial aid on program costs, and there are lots of scholarships available as well.
