Undergraduate Semester Exchanges
Over and over again students express how studying abroad has changed their lives and their future goals. A semester exchange gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture, enhance the knowledge of your major/minor in an international context, learn about a specific country/region, and provide a wide range of skills for your professional life. We know that sometimes the most powerful and long-lasting impacts come through exploration and we are here to help you explore and see the world!
It's never too early to plan ahead! Meet with your O'Neill advisor and the O'Neill semester exchange coordinator to determine which exchange program may be the best fit for your academic and personal goals. O'Neill sends about 2-5 students on each program each semester, so the application process can be quite competitive. Because of this, we recommend making yourself aware of all of the different semester exchange programs available to you. There are many general IU Education Abroad semester opportunites that you can read about here here. These programs have their own advisors and application deadlines. We recommend applying for our programs plus a few backup IU programs you are interested in so that you might increase your chances of spending a semester abroad!
