Study Abroad

Opportunities are available for students to spend a year, semester, or summer abroad. Some faculty have international contacts and exchange agreements have been made with a number of universities overseas. Your academic advisor may be able to put you in touch with a variety of programs. In addition, CALS International Programs features faculty led trips, exchanges and other study abroad opportunities specifically for CALS students.

It is important to understand that agreements and procedures for all the universities we work with differ. Therefore each study abroad opportunity may be organized differently. It is highly recommended that you speak with your advisor, and the staff at Virginia Tech’s Education Abroad Office to learn about the best programs for you. Always plan early for study abroad (at least 9 months ahead) to avoid difficulties completing required coursework at Virginia Tech.
