SOME OF OUR STORIES...
We are transforming global education. Explore how UA Global is redefining the international university experience — from an expansive network of UA Global Locations to intercultural experiences for the entire UA community.
“Study the World, the Wildcat Way”
Whether you’re an international student, study abroad enthusiast, or intercultural explorer, UA Global has something for you—either in Tucson or across the world. We host more than 4,000 international students, operate a growing network of UA Global Locations, and offer more than 200 study abroad programs in the world’s most exciting places.
“I chose to go to Germany because it’s a great place for automotive engineering, and my study abroad program had a great balance of traveling throughout Europe and gaining technical knowledge and experience,” says UA Study Abroad alum Edward Monteverde, Jr.
“Global. It’s in Our DNA”
Are you based at the UA and want to take your academic interests abroad? Want to visit the UA to teach or research? UA Global can help. We support more than 1,500 international faculty members and scholars and advocate for international fellows. We even have a history as a top producer of Fulbright scholars.
"I'm convinced I have learned far more from my colleagues and students than I ever imparted. That is what the Fulbright experience is all about—the give-and-take educational process that is required for intercultural understanding,” says Melissa Fitch, university distinguished professor, Fulbright ambassador, and associate dean for Academic Affairs at the UA Honors College.
“Global. Bold ideas require global connections.”
Whether you want to establish a dual degree program, collaborate on a UA Global Location, or pursue a formal agreement, UA Global is your source for international connections. We develop and maintain partnerships with universities and agencies around the world. Browse our database of 250 international partnerships to get started.
“For a long time, the UA has supported the University of Sonora. We share so much: Geography, climate, and opportunities because in a lot of ways we are the same people—and we want to strengthen this relationship even more,” says Enrique Fernando Velázquez Contreras, rector of Universidad de Sonora.
