Welcome to Study Abroad at Richmond
New cultures, new people, new places. Every year over 350 Richmond students experience those things through a semester or year abroad. They go to all corners of the earth and return having earned credit toward their degree while having had the experience of a lifetime.
Our mission is to facilitate meaningful international experiences outside of the U.S. that encourage the academic, professional, intercultural and personal development of UR students. We aim to help students develop and enhance the skills necessary to have fulfilling experiences abroad, while also requiring them to be deeply invested in their own success as they continue their education in a cross-cultural setting.We collaborate with UR faculty and staff, as well as colleagues abroad, to support student growth and well-being prior to departure, while abroad, and during their re-integration to campus upon return from study abroad.
We invite you to look around at our study abroad site and imagine participating in one of these exciting programs. On these pages you will find descriptions of over 75 study abroad programs in over 30 countries. Which one is right for you?
