Office of Study Abroad and Outreach

Western Illinois offers students a unique combination of opportunities to Study Abroad and gain international experience. You can study abroad from a few weeks to a semester. These experiences are available during different parts of the year. Spring break or the summer provide students with a great opportunity to travel under the leadership of a faculty member, or you can register as a student with our partners around the world for the Fall or Spring Semester.
