Spartans Abroad

University of Tampa students in all majors have the opportunity to build their credentials through an education abroad program. University of Tampa education abroad programs prepare students to be global-ready. Today’s employers seek graduates who can communicate in at least one foreign language, have multicultural knowledge, possess skills and training in negotiating with people of different cultures, and have the basic skills to travel and work outside of the United States. All Spartans participating in international programming, whether credit-bearing or not, must work with the Office of International Programs, meet minimum requirements and abide by published deadlines. Policies apply to both UT-sponsored and affiliated service provider education abroad programming. More information on transferring credit can be found in the UT Catalog.

Where to Begin

Learn the basics of education abroad by visiting the UT Study Abroad Portal to read the Steps to Study Abroad, search for education abroad programs and begin the UT Education Abroad application. The first step in the process is to attend an application workshop. Once you have completed this requirement, you can visit the Office of International Programs (Plant Hall 300) to discuss opportunities with an education abroad advisor, if necessary.

Advising appointment dates and times vary. Please refer to the Education Abroad Appointment Hours page on the UT Study Abroad Portal to schedule an appointment with your advisor based on your last name:

If needed, students may contact their Education Abroad advisor via email to schedule an appointment time outside of normal advising hours.
