As UIT students, you have access to Study, Research and Professional experiences abroad. We are committed to enabling global learning for all students. You also have access to increased, needs-based funding to facilitate your experience abroad. Explore your opportunities today.
There is so much to learn beyond the classroom and going on student exchange programs. UIT will give you the opportunity to choose from prestigious international institutions around the globe. These exchange opportunities provide both undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to take core or elective courses at any of our partner institutions, as non-degree students.
No matter where or for how long you go, learning abroad will shape you and how you see and relate to the world. Gain exposure to different cultures, backgrounds, and forms of teaching.
ACADEMIC ADVANTAGE Most students do not view their education in the same way after going abroad. Expand your horizons by experiencing a different academic environment, connecting with students and professors with diverse backgrounds and engaging in enriching discussions. You will develop your soft skills while boosting your academic profile.

Experiencing different styles of education will enhance learning quality and will expose you to fresh perspectives – be it an elective, a research project or a core course.
GLOBAL ADVANTAGE There is so much to learn beyond the classroom. Global competence isn’t just a buzzword. It is a set of skills necessary to navigate and succeed in today’s interconnected context. A learning experience abroad will provide you with an appreciation of diversity and the ability to connect and work with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. As you learn to navigate and live out of your comfort zone, you will also become more independent and self-confident. No matter where or for how long you go, learning abroad will shape you and how you see and relate to the world. Gain exposure to different cultures, backgrounds, and forms of teaching

Live beyond your borders!
PROFESSIONAL ADVANTAGE Businesses are now global, economies are interconnected, and international experience is increasingly necessary to be on top of the game. Such experience not only tells about your academic achievements, but about your determination and employability skills.
APPLY To apply for Learning Abroad opportunities, the process differs on the program of your interest. In some cases, there may be an online application portal open to students which contains certain deadlines and procedures. You should ensure your eligibility, and prepare all the required documents beforehand. You can apply directly through individual experiences.
EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES The Exchange Program offers the experience of developing employability skills, globalizing classroom content, and expanding networks.
EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES International experience is about more than crossing borders and visiting other countries. It’s about gaining a global perspective on your classroom content, experiencing life-changing moments in your dream destination, and making the most of your university experience by developing valuable skills for the future workplace. It’s about the meeting of different people, languages, traditions, values and ways of interpreting the world — international experience is intercultural experience.
