Study Abroad

Ranked in the top five for the number of undergraduates studying abroad, the University of Denver is known for the impact its students make internationally. At the Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science, we share the university's commitment to international learning and strongly encourage our students to participate in Study Abroad programs.

Cherrington Global Scholars Program

Through the Cherrington Global Scholars Program, the university's primary Study Abroad program, you can study abroad for about the same cost as a term at DU.

Planning to Study Abroad

You will want to plan your study abroad experience carefully. Here are a few things to consider:

  • The engineering curricula has been structured so that you can study abroad in the fall quarter of your fourth year, rather than the fall quarter of your third year, as is more typical in other DU programs.
  • To remain on the four-year graduation path, you will need to be "on track" with your degree program at the time you leave for study abroad and you may need to study at an institution that offers equivalent courses.
  • The institutions that offer the required courses are limited, vary depending on degree and may change from one year to the next.
