Study Abroad

Welcome. Your adventure begins here!

Step 1. Get Started

Before you select a study abroad program it is important to understand the types of available programs, funding models and available locations. Read “Understand Study Abroad” and “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQ’s) in the right-hand menu on this page. Join us on Facebook at UMaine Study Abroad.

Step 2: Get Advice

Our Peer Advisors are available to answer your questions. Drop-in advising without an appointment is available: Monday through Friday at 11am to 3pm in 240 Estabrooke Hall. Connect with a Mentor who has studied abroad in the same location or through the same program.

Step 3.  Explore available programs

UMaine offers more than 700 study abroad programs. Do not get overwhelmed! The Study Abroad Advisor and peer advisors are here to help.

Step 4. Finances & Scholarships

Compare programs’ costs. Make sure you have available funding to pay for your program. Most UMaine financial aid applies to all approved study abroad programs. Research available study abroad scholarships.

Step 5.  Apply

(1) Apply to UMaine to Study Abroad to get approval with the UMaine Application to Study Abroad and (2) to your study abroad program to secure a space in the program.

After your application is approved, the UMaine Study Abroad Advisor will work with you to complete all required paperwork, and provide advice how to book airfare, housing, register for classes and obtain your student visa.
