UCI programs are designed specifically for UCI students to zot abroad through a Bilateral Exchange Program or a Faculty-Led Program.
UCI Faculty-Led programs offer short, thorough international academic experiences led by UCI faculty. Program duration varies between 1-6 weeks.
Bilateral Exchange programs consist of a reciprocal opportunity established by an agreement between UC Irvine and a partner university overseas to facilitate student mobility between the two institutions during a specific term (academic year, fall, winter and spring quarters abroad). Bilateral Exchange Programs are exclusively for UC Irvine students.
The Study Abroad Center is excited to support faculty and departments in the development and coordination of faculty-led programs abroad. Below you’ll find some examples of the successful collaboration between the Study Abroad Center and our valued campus partners in the entire process of offering a program abroad.
