Study Abroad in East Asia

Study abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity whose benefits go far beyond academic learning. Students develop skills in intercultural communication and problem-solving applicable to everyday life. Students learn to become independent and take initiative, and they gain self-confidence, flexibility, perseverance, and appreciation of diversity. An international experience strengthens career opportunities and increases awareness of the interconnected nature of the world. The global character of the economy has prompted more students to experience cross-cultural linkages first-hand.

Follow the links below for information about current study abroad programs:

All study abroad programs are administered through the KU Office of Study Abroad. If you are interested in spending part of your academic career in East Asia, please contact Renee Frias in the Office of Study Abroad, Lippincott Hall, Room 108.
