Study Abroad

Studying abroad can be a highlight of your undergraduate experience, and SEAS encourages our students to expand their education globally. The majority of SEAS students study abroad during their 4th semester (spring of their sophomore year). However, computer science majors typically study abroad in their 6th semester (spring of their junior year). 

Properly preparing for a semester abroad is very important and will help you make the most of your time overseas. Because of the very structured nature of the various engineering and computer science curricula, you should have a clear understanding of the courses you need to take and where you can find them abroad. Students should work closely with their faculty advisors to map out their study abroad courses and your four-year plan.

Throughout the study abroad process, you will work with the Office for Study Abroad, your SEAS professional advisor, and your faculty advisor.
