Customized Study Abroad Programs
University of Arizona academic units may develop customized study abroad programs that are managed centrally by UA Study Abroad or housed within academic units and managed departmentally.
UA Study Abroad provides support for centrally managed programs throughout the program cycle, from initial program development through the post-program stages. Support includes budgeting, negotiating contracts, marketing and recruitment, student advising, collecting and tracking application materials, collecting fees and paying vendors abroad, course enrollment, pre-departure orientation, insurance registration and emergency support.
Increasing interest in developing study abroad programs from across campus has created a greater demand for UA Study Abroad services than we are able to provide. As a result, we kindly ask that you first contact us at (520) 626-9211 to discuss important considerations to craft a meaningful experience abroad. After an initial discussion, please submit the faculty-led program proposal for further evaluation (link below). Programs will be selected based on competitive priorities, such as offering courses that are at capacity on campus, are core requirements of a major/minor, offer an opportunity to expand curriculum based on local context, or are part of an international track within a major.
