Education Abroad Programs

TWU offers education abroad opportunities in more than 25 countries around the world. Students have the option of participating in short-term programs led by TWU faculty or can study for longer periods of time through one of our affiliated partners. Education abroad programs vary in length from as short as 7 days to as long as an academic year. Choosing the right program and location is one of the first steps in the education abroad process. 
 
Short-term (1-3 week) programs led by our faculty with our students.The bulk of the coursework may take place during the regular semester with travel occurring at the end of the semester. For example, an in-class spring semester course with international travel occurring in May. Or, travel may occur during a break in the semester (ex. Spring Break). Many Faculty-Led Abroad Abroad Courses are offered during the summer semester with the travel components occurring during that semester. Explore Faculty-Led Abroad Courses
