Getting Started

The Office of International Affairs administers education abroad programming at Ohio State, which allows you to engage in cross-cultural interactions and enjoy a rewarding educational experience in another country — all at the same time.

At Ohio State, you have the opportunity to gain an education abroad experience by taking classes through an exchange program or foreign university, complete an independent study or service learning project, conduct research or participate in an internship program. Of the more than 350 programs in 70 different countries, there's one especially designed with you in mind.

Education abroad can expand your worldview, enhance your career prospects and ultimately change your life. Getting started is an exciting prospect, and we'll provide guidance every step of the way, whether you're weighing your education abroad options, selecting the program that's right for you or exploring how to fund it. Let us help you make this incredible opportunity a reality.
