One of the best ways you can internationalize your education at The University of Tampa is by taking one of the University’s travel courses. In order to participate, you must enrolll in an on-campus course with a travel component. After the on-campus portion of the class is completed or during spring break, you and your classmates take off, all while earning UT academic credit. Each course’s travel component may last from seven days to four weeks and options vary slightly each year.

Where to Begin

Learn the basics of education abroad by visiting the UT Study Abroad Portal to read the Steps to Study Abroad, search education abroad programs and begin the UT education abroad application.
Students may also visit the Office of International Programs to discuss opportunities with an education abroad advisor. Advisors are located in Plant Hall 300; appointment dates and times may vary due to office events, so please refer to the current calendar. Students may contact their education abroad advisor to schedule an appointment outside of appointment hours, if needed.

How to Apply

The application deadline for spring semester travel courses is Nov. 1. Please note that once courses reach full enrollment they will be closed. Students must first apply online through the UT Study Abroad Portal. Please note: instructor permission is required for some travel courses.
