Pursue a Global Education with a Study Abroad Program at UHCL

Ready to expand your global awareness as you increase your educational experiences? Then look no further than the Study Abroad program at University of Houston-Clear Lake! We are committed to helping you pursue every possible opportunity to take your studies worldwide. Contact the Office of International Admissions and Programs to learn about your Study Abroad options – including advice and information about travel, safety, scholarships and more.

Your fellow UHCL students have visited locations like Egypt, Japan, Greece and even the Amazon Basin in the past several years, but if you want to travel somewhere completely different, we want to make that happen for you. We have multiple avenues for you to take your education international. We’ll help you find the unique program that maximizes your education benefits and interest level.

Faculty-Led Programs

Take advantage of Study Abroad trips offered directly through UHCL. These excursions are directed by UHCL faculty and listed within the UHCL course catalog – and they generally occur during break or summer times, with most ranging from a week to a month in duration. The destinations and topics offered each year do depend upon the faculty member leading the expedition, though past country locations have included Brazil, Czech Republic, Egypt, Ireland and Turkey.

Third-Party Providers

Some external study abroad providers offer the widest variety of opportunities. They have pre-established courses on a multitude of topics and at locations throughout the world. Programs can include traditional semester or summer study abroad or be more specialized to include internships or service learning. The resource library in the Office of International Admissions and Programs has a wide variety of brochures and program offerings from these third-party providers. We will work to connect you to a provider who can fulfill your unique study abroad interests.
