Study Abroad Overseas

Choose your destination

Whether you have always dreamed of visiting another country as part of your university studies or if this is a new idea for you, it is possible to take your education overseas during your academic career at EWU.

You can choose from many different programs, apply for scholarships, apply financial aid to the costs, and transfer your study abroad coursework back to EWU. Rather than take you off course on your university pathway, study abroad experiences can heighten your focus, improve your academic engagement, and help you prepare for professional success.

It can also enrich your life. Study abroad can provide a way to immerse yourself in other cultures and languages, experience and come to understand different perspectives, develop your ability to persevere in circumstances that challenge you, and grow your empathy and cultural humility.
