A Global University

Study abroad is an essential part of the Husky Experience

Through global study, research or internships, students put their classroom learning into action. They gain self-knowledge, cultural competency and the skills necessary for success in today’s global workplaces. But what’s more, students come home with an appreciation and cultural understanding that would not be possible otherwise. This helps to foster a more accepting environment on our campuses, ensuring that the UW remains a place for people of all backgrounds to learn, discover and thrive.

These passionate students traveled the world in pursuit of learning and discovery. Their experiences are as boundless as their destinations.
