*Some program application deadlines vary by program. Please verify deadlines on the web page for the programs you are interested in.
Applications to most programs are reviewed on a rolling basis in the order they are submitted, which means some programs may fill before the deadline has passed. We encourage all students to apply for their first-choice study abroad program as early as possible. We strongly recommend students consider one or two back-up programs in case space is not available in their first-choice program.

"I originally applied to the Yonsei Exchange program for one semester but decided to extend for a second semester for various reasons! I fell in love with both the country and the people here in South Korea. From both professors and classmates, locals and strangers - I have met some of the nicest and most open-minded individuals and am grateful to call some of these people my closest friends and for the many unforgettable memories I have made with them. Not only did I learn lots about the language, culture, and history of South Korea but also that of many other students from around the world as well. In addition, the lifestyle as an exchange student in such a huge city like Seoul was something I did not want to let go of just yet. I love the independence I have here, being able to integrate myself in a culture so different from my own, and learning more about myself and the world around me, I am constantly learning something new and am able to push myself out of my comfort zone every day. I would never be able to have such an experience if I didn’t get out of Eugene!"

"Right off that bat, as soon as you start talking to people in London, as soon as they hear our accent they kind of pause for a second and confirm that you’re an American and then it's a whole long conversation about cultural differences which is really fun. There isn't really a language barrier [in the UK] but there are tons of different cultures, and London is a very diverse city.
As for studying abroad during COVID, it’s really worked out well. Right now there’s like a million less people in the UK in general so the streets are not crowded, it’s not a tense atmosphere at all, we’re free to go where we want and experience the local scene. It’s been a blast, it’s a big city with a lot to do!"
