"Melbourne was the first city that I have ever fallen in love with. The amount of culture, food, music, and art overflowing the streets and alleyways created an atmosphere that I never wanted to leave. The cultural diversity and uniqueness of the city was incredible to experience and explore. Not only was it a cultural experience of Australia, but also cultures from around the world. The closeness of our TEAN group in Melbourne made trips around the corner or to other countries easy because someone else would always be just as excited to go. Living in the heart of Melbourne opened up our world to new experiences every day and really showed us how lucky we were to share in this experience of studying abroad in Australia."

To apply to this program, you must complete two main steps:

  1. Submit a UMD approval application - start by clicking “apply now” at the top of this page. This application allows UMD Education Abroad to approve your study abroad program selection so you may earn credit in a program outside of UMD.
    This application will require you to meet with your EA advisor, who will communicate important details related to participating in this program. If you do not complete this application by the stated deadline, you may not receive credit for your study abroad program and will lose your student status for the time you are not studying at UMD.
  2. Apply directly to the program provider. After receiving UMD approval, you should submit the program application directly to the program sponsor by their deadline. Your program sponsor will determine your official acceptance to a program. You must adhere to the provider's timeline, eligibility standards, and application requirements.

After being accepted to your program, your EA advisor will guide you through the course pre-approval process where you will determine which credits you will fulfill abroad.

UMD partners with TEAN to offer affiliate program options to UMD students in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. You will maintain your UMD student status while abroad and you will work directly with TEAN program staff as a participant on their program. Your EA advisor will assist you with this process and can answer questions you may have about the application process.

Academics on a TEAN program
All courses on TEAN programs are considered for transfer credit. Field studies, internships, and other experiential courses require explicit approval by exception from your academic advisor or college advising office for credit transfer.

Costs & Billing for TEAN programs
The affiliate program costs apply to this program. UMD students studying on TEAN semester programs will get an $800 discount off of the published TEAN program fee.

As part of your program application to TEAN, you will pay a $500 program deposit and an $350 housing deposit to secure your spot. The remaining TEAN program fees, including housing, will be charged to your UMD student account. You will be able to use any financial aid you receive from UMD towards these charges.

Scholarships for this program are available through the UMD Education Abroad Fund and TEAN Scholarship Funds including the Diversity Scholarship and merit and need-based awards.

Students studying in New Zealand are also encouraged to apply for the New Zealand - Generation Study Abroad Excellence and Travel Award.
