Welcome to the Winthrop University International Center Study Abroad Portal*

Yes! You can study abroad!  The International Center will help you every step of the way.

*The study abroad portal is an informational website that provides in-depth information regarding all aspects of Winthrop's study abroad programs including locations, costs, academics, travel resources, and application procedures.

Winthrop University provides a variety of enriching opportunities for students to study abroad on all four corners of the globe and everywhere in between. Specifically, Winthrop has study abroad programs in locations including Central America, the Southern Cone (including Argentina), Asia, Australia, Africa, and Europe.  Students can participate in summer, semester, or full academic year programs abroad, and tailor their experience to their specific academic goals and personal interests.  Additionally, Winthrop has created clear connections between studying abroad and the curriculum we offer our students.  In fact, a majority of Winthrop's academic departments have identified a semester where students in their majors can study abroad and still graduate within a four-year time frame.  A sampling of the opportunities offered at Winthrop are listed below as well as steps students can take to begin one of the most exciting opportunities Winthrop has to offer.

Winthrop Study Abroad Opportunities

Winthrop Faculty-Led Programs
With Faculty-Led programs, Winthrop students can participate in a semester or summer program sponsored by Winthrop University and directed by our faculty.  Students pay tuition to Winthrop and receive Winthrop University grades and credits upon successful completion of the course.  Faculty members at Winthrop offer short-term programs that range in duration from seven days over spring break, to four weeks in the summer. These programs are an ideal way for students to gain invaluable international experience while still maintaining work and family commitments at home.  Click here to view all upcoming faculty-led programs
