Search for a Study Abroad Program
When selecting a program, please keep in mind the differences between internal, external and affiliated program options. Internal programs are those which are only for UHD students. If you would like to apply to a UHD faculty-led program, choose “Internal Programs” under the Program Type option. They are either led by UHD faculty or are exchange programs with institutions with which UHD has partnership agreements. External programs are run by study abroad providers or foreign universities abroad. Affiliated programs are external programs that often offer discounts to UHD students. Students may participate in any of the programs in the database; however, it is each student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses taken abroad will transfer back to UHD.

Search by Major using
Use the “Major” pull-down menu to choose a major that is relevant to the courses you wish to take while abroad. This does not have to be your major. Please note that not all of the programs that offer courses in a subject will show up when you search by major, so if you only need one or two courses in a particular subject it’s best to search more general majors or “all.” You can also try separate searches in more than one major.
The “Subjects” menu can only be used if you first select a major that has various areas listed.
