Programs that are offered through our office
There are over 100 programs offered through the Office of Overseas Study. There are two types of programs: co-sponsored and IU-administered. It is important to know the distinctions. You can browse lists of our programs organized by term (academic year, semester, or summer) or language of instruction.
IU-administered programs are organized by the Office of Overseas Study on the Bloomington campus. IU selects and orients students and arranges travel, housing, and administration abroad. You pay all fees to IUB, earn direct IU credit and most types of financial aid (excluding work-study and music performance-based scholarships) may be applied to program costs.
Co-sponsored programs are administered by organizations or institutions with which IU partners. Co-sponsored programs include CIEE, CYA, DIS, IES, CIC-London, Florence-CAPA, Cairo, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth and Wollongong. IU selects and orients students, but a program provider or host institution arranges housing, classes and administration abroad. You pay a $475-800 program fee to IU and pay other costs to the co-sponsoring agency. You earn direct IU credit, and may apply most (but not all) financial aid to program costs.
Programs offered by all eight IU campuses
All eight IU campuses offer study abroad programs, which can be accessed through the Big List. Eligible students throughout the IU system can apply to these programs unless the programs are restricted.
In an increasingly competitive global economy, the interna- tional dimension of education is becoming more and more important. Indeed, it is a matter of practical necessity: we have to provide it as a part of a good education, and students increasingly demand it."-IU President Michael A. McRobbie
