There are academic, financial and logistical considerations that go into the process of selecting a CCU-approved education abroad program, so students have to plan early and work effectively with campus advisers.

Choosing to study, research or intern abroad is one of the best decisions a student can make, and we are thrilled you are considering a semester, academic year, or short-term experience! To ensure you have the information you need to make an informed program choice, our student adviser hosts a virtual Study Abroad 101 session every week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00 p.m. (Eastern US Time) for students interested in learning more about education abroad opportunities.  

You can access Study Abroad 101 on Zoom HERE.  Meeting ID: 910 7806 8253 Passcode: 85672900.  (If you experience any difficulties, email

After attending this 60-minute session, you will be able to:

  • Identify reasons why students travel abroad with CCU
  • Name some of the benefits of participating in an international education program
  • Apply online for a CCU-approved option that lines up with your goals

What to bring: NOTHING! We have you covered.
