Frequently Asked Questions
When can I study abroad?
Programs range in length of time from 1-15 weeks. UND students can study abroad for a semester, summer, academic year, spring break, or a 10-day period in May.
Learn more about our study abroad program models.
Are distance/online students eligible to study abroad?
Yes! In fact distance students have participated in UND study abroad programs in the past. Reach out to your Academic Advisor to discuss your academic plan, review the recorded Study Abroad 101 video, and connect with the Study Abroad Office for more information.
Where can I study abroad?
All over the world! UND Study Abroad offers programs on all continents (except Antarctica). Chances are if you have a country in mind we have a program you can review.
What can I study abroad?
Students have the opportunity to take major/minor coursework, Essential Studies classes, and elective credit abroad. As study abroad credit will apply as transfer credit, all students are encouraged to meet with their Academic Advisor to discuss how study abroad aligns with their academic plan.
What are the costs of study abroad?
The primary costs of study abroad are your tuition, housing, flight, and meals but you will also need to consider study abroad-specific costs such as passport, potential student visa, and study abroad fees. Costs vary based on location and how long you are abroad.
Do I need to speak the local language?
No, but language learning is highly encouraged! Depending on your program students have opportunities to take formal coursework on-site and join language-focused student groups or connect with language partners. You can also take coursework at UND prior to your departure or check out the many language learning apps.
Learn more about language courses available through UND.
When should I start planning to study abroad?
It's never to early to start planning! We encourage students interested in studying abroad to meet with their Academic Advisor to identify the best time to study abroad within their academic plan. That will help narrow the program search and focus on specific coursework abroad.
Study abroad applications are due the term before you travel, so it's important that you keep those deadlines in mind as you review program options.
Learn more about the timeline of study abroad through our Study Abroad Checklist video.
Where can I apply for my passport?
Did you know you could apply for your U.S. passport on campus? The International Center is an official location for passport applications. We can also take your passport photo. Passports are valid for 10 years so it's always a great time to apply!
