Study Abroad allows students to complement and enhance their classroom instruction by experiencing the culture and language of a host country. Through WIU’s Study Abroad Program, students can participate in a wide variety of educational programs located in more than 50 countries worldwide .

There are many programs that take place over Spring and Winter breaks or in the Summer, or students may choose to participate in semester- or year-long programs.

Many Study Abroad programs are comparable in cost to studying on WIU’s Illinois campuses , and financial aid and scholarships are available to qualified students.
