Make global destinations part of your hilltop education.

Few experiences give you a deeper understanding of the world community (and yourself) than living, studying or doing an internship abroad.

At St. Edward’s, we provide a variety of options for you to study abroad, including programs that offer internship opportunities and independent research, as well as educational excursions. Our Global Engagement Office (GEO) will work with you to choose your ideal program and ensure that you achieve your academic goals. See GEO’s 4-step overview: How to Apply to Study Abroad.

Exchange Programs

Among the most popular study abroad destinations our students travel to are our international partner universities. And with 24 partners in 17 countries, these exchange programs provide plenty of choices to consider. Learn about our partner universities and the advantages our exchange programs offer you.

Faculty-Led Programs

Students participate in faculty-led trips, most commonly to our partner universities. Each trip focuses on a specific area of study. For example, Photocommunications students traveled to Beppu, Japan, under the guidance of their professor, and put their cameras to work documenting a topic of their choosing. View narrated slideshows of four students presenting their favorite photos and describing their experiences in Japan.

Through our approved provider programs, students have access to hundreds of study abroad options in more than 90 countries. These programs allow students to complete courses at study centers designed for American students or at local institutions through direct enrollments.
