2015 Short Term Study Abroad Application***
Interested in studying abroad? There are many credit-earning study abroad opportunities available to Coastal students. Students can participate in semester or year-long (“Long Term”) study abroad programs at exchange partner institutions or through outside (non-CCU) Third Party providers. “Short Term” study abroad programs are also offered by CCU, such as faculty-led Maymester programs, as well as by third-party providers.
Studying abroad is an exciting opportunity for Coastal students to round out their education, and experience other cultures and countries first-hand. Studying abroad is also a rewarding experience that lets students achieve proficiency in a foreign language; study subjects from different cultural perspectives; experience adventure and personal growth; and develop valuable career skills.
The Office of International Programs and Services (OIPS) staff is readily available to help students identify and apply for a study abroad program that best suits their academic and personal goals. We encourage Coastal students to contact or visit our office if you have any questions or need additional information about studying abroad.
