Study Abroad

Get Started

Thinking about studying abroad?  Here's how to get started!

Steps to Getting Started

  • Attend First Step Session. Click here for the weekly schedule of sessions. If you are unable to attend a session in person, you may also view First Step Session online.
  • Open an application!
    • Click here to open an application for fall, winter, spring, and year-long programs (year-long students should select fall quarter when opening their application).
    • For summer quarter AUP/UPPs, click here to open a summer application.
    • There is no commitment in opening an application. The OIE asks that all students open an application right after attending a First Step Session.
  • Complete the DU Study Abroad Nomination Application  before the deadline (January 18th, 2018 for all 2018-2019 programs). Applications for summer quarter 2018 (AUPS & UPPs) are due March 30th, 2018.

These steps must be completed before the deadline. It typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to complete all steps. 

Don't forget that the application is just one small step of your study abroad journey!  You will have lots of preparation to do before you depart, too.
