Short-Term Study Abroad Opportunities

Some of Coastal Carolina University's brightest and most adventurous students pass through the Office of International Programs & Services (OIPS) on their way to exciting and challenging experiences all over the world. International opportunities continue to increase each year with more students participating in Coastal's semester-exchange, 'Maymester' (10 to 20 day study abroad programs), summer academic programs, or spending three to six months working in a select group of countries. Additionally, Coastal subscribes to publications that list more than 2,500 university-sponsored study abroad program.




Coastal's list of exchange sites grows with each passing year. The university is actively engaged in developing relationships with colleges and universities throughout the world that will give students uniquely valuable educational experiences abroad. One of the major attractions of these particular programs is that they allow Coastal students to study in another country while paying Coastal tuition. This is usually substantially less than what would be paid if students were to enroll at any of these institutions directly.



Please reveiw the Study Abroad Handbook 2012 to help you in planning a study abroad experience.
