Study Abroad

Welcome to the home for study abroad activity at WCU. Study abroad changes lives, and the work of the Center for International Programs is guided by our commitment to promoting access to international education opportunities for our diverse population of students.

Finding the Right Program

Our office provides support for 3 types of study abroad programs, faculty-led, exchange, and programs offered by our 8 affiliate partners. At CIP, we assist with all aspects of the application and pre-departure process to ensure that every student has an opportunity to successfully complete an international program, and maximize their academic and personal growth. The first step to learning more about study abroad opportunities at WCU is to attend a study abroad information session in the Center for International programs. Academics are most important when choosing a study abroad program, so it is critical for students to keep an open dialogue with their academic advisor throughout the process.

WCU Global Ambassadors Program

Students who have returned from study abroad have been selected to be peer advisors and assist with promoting study abroad on campus in a variety of ways. Our 10 WCU Global Ambassadors have studied and travelled in different locations and are a great resource for peer advising.
