The Overview

  • Have a true immersion experience at a leading university
  • Pay the equivalent of your UMD tuition
  • Develop lasting bonds with local students and professors
  • Join a new campus community by taking part in co-curricular activities at your host institution

As an exchange student you will push your boundaries by directly enrolling at one of UMD's partner universities while living and learning with students from your host country. Exchanges are one of the most affordable study abroad options and will allow you to take advantage of excellent academic programs around the globe. What's more is that you will be part of a growing global community of exchange students, including those who come to study at UMD.

Research Programs & Apply

Meet with an EA advisor, who can help you choose an exchange program that will be both challenging and rewarding for you based on your area of study, knowledge of a foreign language, and regional interests. We can help you determine how the available courses may fit into your four year plan and provide additional information about the program such as housing, cultural excursions and activities, the program calendar, and more.

Many Exchanges are open to all students, though some are restricted to students in specific academic departments such as Business, Engineering, Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Journalism. Some exchange programs require proficiency in a foreign language but many have no foreign language prerequisite, even in countries where English is not the primary language.

Access the program application online by clicking on the "Apply Now" button at the top of the program page. You will login with your UMD directory ID and password and submit most application elements online. You should submit all application materials by the stated deadline. Your EA advisor will assist you throughout the application process.

After the application deadline, we review all applications and nominate students for available spots in each exchange program. Nominated students will then work with EA advisors and our partner universities to coordinate all aspects of the stay at the host university such as course registration, housing, visas and arrival.
