Study Abroad

Program Directors

UW Faculty-led programs are an opportunity for UW students to work closely with a UW faculty member in a specific discipline and country of interest. UW Study Abroad is proud to support programs led by our faculty and we work to ensure that they are academically rigorous, financially accessible, and integrated with courses of study.

This site is a resource for faculty running study abroad programs. It is divided into two parts.

  1. Toolkit of resources (below)
  2. Step-by-step information corresponding to the phases of running a program (in the navigation to the right)
