Has your study abroad experience left you eager for another international experience? There are several ways for you to go abroad again.
More opportunities to study internationally as a DU Student:

- The Office of Special Programs offers a handful of interterm courses that involve a travel component. For their current list of offerings, see here.

Graduate Studies Abroad:
Considering graduate studies? Have you ever thought about getting an entire graduate degree abroad? Several universities around the world welcome international students for graduate degrees. Many of them do not require a placement exam like the GRE or GMAT and offer one-year masters degree programs. Best of all, many of these universities have more reasonable tuition fees than you will find in the US, yet with a comparable quality of education. It is also possible to apply US Federal Financial Aid towards your studies at recognized institutions. Certain countries, like the United Kingdom, will give you a 1- or 2-year work visa upon completion of an advanced degree in their country. To learn more, visit the following websites:
