Do you want to travel as part of a University of Cincinnati class? A faculty-led study abroad program may be the right fit for you. 

What Steps Do I Need To Take?

1. Explore: Review the programs available below.
2. Learn: Attend an information session.
3. Apply: Start your application. Spring program applications have a deadline of October 15. Fall program applications have a deadline of March 15.
4. Commit: Once accepted into a program, commit to the program within your application.
5. Register: IPO will give you permission to register for the class.

How much does it cost to study abroad on a faculty-led program?
The cost of a faculty-led program will vary widely depending on the destination. However, scholarships are awarded automatically to students who study abroad to help offset the cost. Students can also apply for UC's Lead and Grow Grant for additional funding. Read more about how to fund a study abroad program. 

Can I get course credit for a faculty-led program?
Yes! Each program is embedded in a 3-credit hour, in-person course on campus that takes place for the duration of a semester. The programs count for major-specific electives depending on the topic and content of the course.

One faculty-led program will also satisfy three credits of a business student's study abroad/foreign language/culture course requirement.

Will I miss my other classes while I am travelling on a faculty-led program?
The travel portion of each program takes place during Spring Break, May Break, or Winter Break, so students will not miss regular class meetings.

Are faculty-led programs competitive?
Yes. Students must complete an application to participate in a faculty-led program, as each one has a maximum of 20-24 students. Essay responses, major, and the completion of prerequisites are all taken into consideration when students are selected. A minimum of 2.5 GPA is required.

Are the program destinations safe?
UC International and the Lindner International Programs Office are always monitoring the safety of the countries and areas where we send our students. Your safety abroad is our No. 1 priority.

Can I study abroad more than once?
Absolutely. Our programs are designed in a way that students can study abroad multiple times throughout their undergraduate career; however, students are not able to participate in more than one faculty-led program within the same semester.
