You may have always dreamt of studying abroad or you may have come to the idea recently. Either way, you’ll want to begin to think about your study abroad goals and what you hope to get out of your study abroad experience. Things to consider range from academic and cultural goals to finances, so be sure to think through all of these before diving into the options.

Each study abroad program sponsored by the University of Richmond is described in detail on our Gateway Abroad portal, which you can use to search programs by criteria such as program type, academic subject, minimum GPA, language of instruction, or housing options. You can use this feature to start building a list of programs that meet your criteria so you can discuss it with your family and advisors at UR. We encourage you to keep an open mind, consider options that you might not have thought of before, and ask lots of questions. As you explore the program options, keep in mind that we’ll ask you to list a first and second program choice as part of the application.

For Business Majors Only
Business majors who plan to transfer business credit back to UR from their study abroad experience should consult the list of study abroad partner universities that have been specifically approved by the RSB for business transfer credit. This list is a subset of generally approved UR study abroad options. Business majors may apply to study onanyapproved UR program if they do not intend to transfer back any business credits from their semester/year abroad.
