Students interested in going abroad should investigate possibilities through the Opportunities Abroad Program, which can assist with placement in a wide range of academic programs outside the UC system. These programs include study for an academic year, semester, quarter, or summer. They may be sponsored by other US universities or include direct enrollment in foreign institutions. Academic credit may also be earned on a number of overseas internship programs that combine work experience and courses.

Students going abroad through the Opportunities Abroad Program earn transfer credit from the sponsoring institution. Courses taken abroad may satisfy general-education, major, or minor requirements, depending on department or college approval. Federal and state financial aid for approved plans of study abroad is available. Special study abroad scholarships are also available.

In addition to these academic programs, Study Abroad UC San Diego can assist students in selecting a wide range of volunteer, paid work, and educational travel programs.
