UW-Platteville Education Abroad is a provider of education abroad programs open to students from any U.S. college or university. Since 1979, more than 13,000 students from over 250 institutions nationwide have chosen to study abroad through UW-Platteville Education Abroad because of our affordable and distinctive programs.

UW-Platteville students are able to participate in more than 175 different programs including: study abroad, exchange, short-term faculty-lead, student teaching, internships, service learning and volunteering, and research abroad. These credit-bearing programs embrace more than 200 different areas of study and range in duration from two weeks to one year. Students are able to go abroad for a semester, academic or calendar year, and short-term programs are also available over the spring, winter, and summer breaks. Programs are available in more than 45 different countries across the globe, and students return having not only earned credit toward their degree, but, more importantly, making an investment in their future.

Individual program costs vary based on a variety of factors, such as: the cost of living and location of the program site, level of support and the number of excursions or other group activities included, program length, tuition of the host institution, accommodation style, personal lifestyle, exchange rate, airfare, cost of additional travel, and more.

It is true that an education abroad program can cost more than the normal semester at UW-Platteville. Despite this, many students decide to go abroad for the following reasons:

  • Affordability provided by the UW-Platteville International Study Grant/Scholarship
  • Financial aid applies to program costs and additional grants and scholarships are available
  • The realization that there are many affordable program options to choose from
  • Broadened perspective on area of study
  • Increased marketability after graduation
  • Recognizing that the experience of going abroad is worth the cost, and there is no better time to discover the world!
