Community-based service-learning experiences and other non-credit programs abroad are unique opportunities for students to internationalize their plan of study and develop intercultural skills. The Office of International Programs advises students to discuss opportunities with an Education Abroad advisor to find sustainable and ethical options for community-based service learning abroad.
An example of a past opportunity for UT students to engage in experiential learning was a two-week travel course to Ghana where nursing students gained hands on experience in community health while earning clinical hours towards their degree.
Students can combine volunteer service with an academic program abroad. Upon successful completion of the program students are able to receive official notation on their co-curricular transcript for community-based service learning.
