Study Abroad

UCU encourages students to spend a period of time abroad, if you comply with a number of criteria including academic standing. Find out more in the Study Abroad Guide. There are three types of programs:

Programs on location

These programs are designed by UCU but take place abroad. Examples are the China Program and the Transnational Law Program.

International internship
