"It has never been more important for students to gain an international perspective and understanding in today's interconnected global economy. We encourage all students to pursue a study abroad opportunity that immerses them in different cultures and provides a learning experience of a lifetime. Whatever career they pursue, study abroad enriches and expands a student's Oklahoma State University education."

Why Study Abroad?

Studying away from Oklahoma can provide you with some amazing experiences. It provides ways for you to grow professionally in an academic setting. The expectation is that you will use your experience to prepare yourself to meet challenges and seize the opportunities of an increasingly global society. Students of all majors, levels of study, and financial backgrounds are able to study abroad.


How to Begin?

Where Can I Go?

There are also hundreds of options for students looking for summer break, spring break, and winter intersession options. OSU also participates in the National Student Exchange, a consortium of more than 170 universities in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Canada.
