Summer and Semester/Year Abroad Programs

Once the travel bug bites, it may stay in your system for a long time to come – if not for life, which is why the University of Tampa offers numerous opportunities to stay abroad longer than several weeks. Each year we send more than 125 students abroad for a summer, entire semester or even a year-long educational experience. You are not limited to where you can study, either. In fact, our students are currently studying in India, South Africa, Turkey, Iceland, Dubai, Brazil and Costa Rica, as well as more traditional locations like Australia, Italy and the UK.


Visit The Office of International Programs to discuss these program opportunities with an education abroad advisor. Specifically, students may contact Katie Pazda or Clara Ohannes. Student walk-in hours are held in Plant Hall 304 and 306; as dates and times may vary due to office events, please consult the current calendar. All other times are by appointment only. Students may also search for programs on the Spartans Abroad Program Portal.
