Study Abroad Program

You are making a wise decision to begin to explore a Study Abroad program at Michigan Technological University. Foreign study and travel will benefit you in numerous ways:

  • Personally, through an exposure to new cultures and places
  • Academically, through access to courses not available at Michigan Tech and to different perspectives on topics not taught at Tech
  • Professionally, because companies want to hire students who are skilled interculturally and globally literate 

Study Abroad 101 Session

Study Abroad 101 is used to educate students on the details of studying abroad. If you're interested in studying abroad, you'll want to attend this important session held twice per week. Not sure if studying abroad will work for you? Which program will fit best with your academic program? Questions about financial aid and scholarships? All students are encouraged to attend a Study Abroad 101 advising session as they begin to explore the international education opportunities at Michigan Tech.

Each session will include an overview of the study abroad options available to Michigan Tech students, the study abroad process and how to work it into your academic plan.
