Teaching Abroad

The University of Florida International Center (UFIC), in collaboration with UF academic units and colleges, facilitates and develops UF sponsored study-abroad programs for students. All (credit bearing) UF study abroad programs are administered through the International Center. Study abroad program proposals for faculty-led programs need approval from the college,the home department, and the UFIC.

Faculty-led study abroad programs are programs in which the academic instruction on site is provided by UF faculty (for UF credit) or specially contracted host institution faculty teaching the equivalent of existing UF courses (for transfer credit). Typically, these are short-term programs (up to eight weeks), offered during the summer, May intersession or spring break. However, faculty is encouraged to propose semester programs as well. UFIC welcomes early, informal consultation by faculty for program planning and encourages coordinated programming among departments.
