See the world. Start here.
The world is so much bigger than Northern Arizona. That’s why we have a robust study abroad program and encourage all of our students to explore their international options at some point during their time here. We offer traditional exchange programs, faculty-led programs, and provider programs. CIE has advisors available to help you figure out which one is right for you and make it easy for you to get there.
Spend a semester with one of our partner universities around the world. Choose from one of dozens of locations and corresponding universities across Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, Latin America, and the Middle East. These programs are exceptionally affordable and immersing yourself in a foreign university is priceless. You’ll earn direct NAU credit and your grades will count toward your GPA.
These study abroad excursions are created specifically for NAU students by NAU faculty, typically taking place for one to four weeks during summer, winter, or spring break. Destinations are always changing, and have included India, Ireland, China, Italy, and many more. Though these are fee-based programs, there are a number of loans, scholarships, and grants that may be available to help you afford them.
Operated by third-party, private programs like ISEP-Direct and USAC, these programs are highly structured and inclusive—and also the most expensive option. These programs could be a great option if you’re looking for a specialized program that you can’t find through a partner university. Some loans, grants, and non-NAU scholarships may be available to help cover costs.
