Studying abroad is a wonderful way to enhance the college experience. IU is not only a leader in overseas study opportunities but also believes international experiences are critical for success today.
According to the Institute of International Education, IU Bloomington ranks 7th in the total number of students who study abroad. More than 2,500 IU Bloomington students a year study abroad. IU offers more than 100 overseas study programs in approximately 40 countries and 17 languages, and programs cover nearly every field of study.
The Office of Overseas Study is staffed by professionals who help students select the programs that best suit their needs. Students do not need to be foreign language majors to participate.
