Join O'Neill for International Education Week!

International Education Week (IEW) is an occasion to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide, and more specifically – to highlight the wonderful international students at IU AND the opportunities provided at IU to add international experiences to your academic plan! In addition to events across campus, the O’Neill School is putting on a variety of events focused on study abroad, post-graduation international opportunities, and more. These events are open to faculty, staff, and students from all departments! Please see the full schedule of O’Neill events for descriptions of each event.

Take your education international

The O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs offers a variety of overseas experiences that are open to students from all IU campuses. You can spend from one week up to a full semester overseas earning IU credit hours that can count toward your degree in a variety of ways.

Although these opportunities are designed with O’Neill students in mind, the course topics are often of interest to a diverse student body. On the Bloomington campus, many of our courses are pre-approved to count for the World Languages and Cultures general education requirement, ensuring that our O’Neill International experiences are valuable to all undergraduate degree programs. At IUPUI, as well as the regional campuses, students from across academic disciplines have been successful at getting our courses to fulfill a variety of degree requirements. 


When you take your education overseas, you open yourself to professional development and personal growth opportunities that you just can't get in a traditional classroom.
