Welcome to GEO (Global Education Oregon)—your first step on the path to studying abroad as a UO student.

At the University of Oregon, you have more than 250 programs to choose from, in 90 countries around the world. We offer a range of global educational experiences throughout the academic year and summer that thrill, challenge, and inform. More than 25% of UO students study abroad, with nearly 1,400 of you going abroad each year.

Course offerings and academic programs are extensive and serve a wide number of subjects and majors. Service learning projects and internships are also available. Whether you want to study sustainability in a modern capital or explore the urban landscape of an ancient one, we have a program for you.

When you study abroad, you can satisfy general education, major-specific, and elective credits, and still graduate on time. You can also walk at graduation with a special international sash that proudly displays where you studied—see this video of our 2015 graduates.

At GEO we believe that study abroad is for everyone. For a comprehensive list of programs, scholarships and financial aid options, visit the Global Education Oregon office in 333 Oregon Hall during drop-in advising hours (M-F, 1:30-3:30 pm) to speak with a study abroad advisor, or explore a world of opportunities online at
