Learn About Studying Abroad

Today students recognize the value and benefits of meaningful international experience as part of their UB education. Study abroad at UB offers a world of opportunities for learning and personal development.

UB makes it easy to study abroad through a large portfolio of programs, formats and destinations, and outstanding advisement and support.  You can go abroad for a week or a year, and earn credit toward your UB degree. You can participate with fellow students on a faculty-led program, or study on your own at an institution overseas. Our many exchange programs allow you to study at a foreign university at a cost comparable to studying at UB. If you thought study abroad was impossible or not for you, it’s time to think again.
