UW Partner Programs

UW Partner Programs are providers of  study abroad programming outside of the network of our exchange partner universities or UW faculty-led programs. You may choose any program offered by our UW Partners. These programs have their own deadlines, but typically autumn semester and year deadlines are in March and spring semester deadlines are in November.

UW University Exchanges

University exchange programs accept applications on a pooling basis, meaning that all exchanges have the same deadline and they accept all applications until that deadline, pool the applicants together, and then nominate students who are the best fit for that particular exchange.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2018-19 academic year.

There are two applications cycles for exchanges every year

In the 1st cycle, you may apply for the 1st semester, the 2nd semester, or the full academic year. The 1st cycle’s deadline is January 15th for the following academic year. Exchanges in Japan have an earlier deadline of November 30th.

In the 2nd cycle, you may apply to 2nd semester (sometimes referred to as the spring semester) exchange programs, but space may be limited by students selected during the 1st cycle. The 2nd cycle’s deadline is May 15th for the spring semester of the following year.
