Study Abroad Center
The UNI Study Abroad Center strives to provide service and leadership in international education to UNI students, faculty, staff, the community and the State of Iowa. We offer a wide selection of programs ranging from two weeks to an academic year abroad.
Many of our offerings are exchange programs where students pay UNI tuition to go abroad for a semester and get courses that count towards their UNI degree. We also offer faculty-led programs over the summer and winter break session for two to three weeks where students travel with a UNI professor and class of students. Earn credits on these programs that often cover UNIFI categories.
Increasingly, students recognize that international academic experiences are critical to success in today’s global community. Whether a student seeks to become fluent in another language, pursue an international degree, participate in an international service-learning opportunity or simply experience life in another culture, the Study Abroad Center can make it happen.
Rennes AI Business
Earn six credits by going with a group of UNI students to Rennes School of Business for a month in early summer! You have the independence to discover France (like Paris) while having the opportunity to study under faculty from a prestigious business school.
This program is especially beneficial for accounting students, but can also benefit MIS and computer science majors. You can be back in time for summer internships, potentially qualify for extra funding, and make yourself more marketable through this experience!
