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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
