Students posing as statuesThis section of the website is devoted to explaining the different factors that will affect the total cost to study abroad, such as:

  • the program's affiliation with DU
  • CGS eligibility
  • duration of the program
  • student's status as an undergraduate or graduate.

Studying abroad doesn't have to be more expensive than staying at DU. If you plan ahead, few locations are out of reach, even with a limited budget. You need to be realistic about how cost-of-living varies around the world, but that can work in your favor. Sometimes, it's even possible to save money by studying abroad!

In the spirit of the commitment of the Cherrington Global Scholars (CGS) initiative, it is our hope that financial constraints never be the sole reason that a student is not able to study abroad. If you are aware that finances will be a challenge for you, let your OIE advisor know these concerns early on in the advising process and we will do our best to find a program that fits your budget.
