Explore Xavier's Education Abroad Programs
These programs are coordinated by another US institution or organization (such as USAC, Arcos Learning Abroad, AIFS, etc.) that provides extensive service and support during your study abroad experience. Many programs are offered through other Jesuit schools providing a great academic fit. Some programs offer service-learning or internship opportunities.
Direct Exchange Semester
These programs allow students to study at a foreign university with which Xavier has a special agreement. Often times students from these universities will study at Xavier for a semester, while you study there!
Students can earn 3 to 12 credit hours on these short-term programs led by Xavier faculty during summer, spring, and winter breaks. Program duration is anywhere between 10-days and six-weeks long. Some programs are major-specific, while others offer core curriculum courses for any major to participate.
Students can enroll in study abroad programs during winter, spring, and summer breaks through our education abroad providers such as USAC, API, AIFS, and others. Please contact the CIE (firstname.lastname@example.org) if the program you are applying to is not listed in the portal.
Summer Internships and Research Abroad
Students can enroll in programs that specifically focus on internships and/or research abroad without a specific course/study component.
Use the program search feature in the left-side navigation to search for programs by country, region, term, types of accommodation, and/or area of study. Categories for area of study include the following: Arts & Performance, Athletics, Business, Communication, Education, Honors, Language, Politics, STEM, and Social Impact. The use of area of study will help you narrow if a program has certain types of classes. Students need to review courses available to ensure that they are compatible with course requirements.
