UW Oshkosh


You can choose to study abroad through a non-UW Oshkosh-sponsored program!

Can't find a program that fits your needs at UW Oshkosh or through UW System? Look elsewhere! Study through another U.S. university offering programs abroad, through a study abroad company, or by direct enrolling in a university abroad.

The OIE offers group advising to anyone interested in studying through a non-UW Oshkosh-sponsored program. We'll help you define your expectations, give you tools to search for a program and advise you on the "business" you'll need to take care of at UW Oshkosh before and after studying abroad.

Bring the Paperwork handout with you to your OIE advising appointment.
