  • Virtual Study Abroad Fair



Welcome, Global Jayhawks! Are you ready to learn more about the 150+ study abroad opportunities available to you during your time at KU? Visit our virtual Study Abroad Fair this spring! It's never too early to start planning for your time abroad. In fact, students who begin planning early during their time at KU have more flexibility in regards to where they can study abroad and when. 


Our Study Abroad Fair will take place from 10am to 3pm daily, beginning on Monday, February 15 and ending on Friday, February 19. Each day, we'll host a series of sessions focusing on different world regions, programs, and international education opportunities and resources. We invite students to drop-in and speak with KU Study Abroad program coordinators at any time during these sessions to learn more about the range of opportunities available, as we have programs ranging in length from one week to a full academic year and taking place during winter break, spring break, summer, and semester terms.


Students are encouraged to attend as many sessions as they are able for the programs and topics they are interested in. Don't worry if you are not available to stick around for the entirety of a session! Students are welcome to join at any time during a session and to stay for the amount of time that works best for them.


The virtual study abroad fair can be accessed via Zoom. Register for the Study Abroad Fair via this link.

This is a service available throughout the spring semester. More information can be found here.
