International Exchanges offer an academically challenging opportunity that enable UNT students to attend universities abroad for an academic year or semester and earn credit in most major fields. Participating students make normal academic progress for about the same cost as studying at UNT. Our students pay tuition and fees at UNT and room/board and other normal expenses at the host institution in the host country.UNT students enroll in courses as regular students and are responsible for all course work and examinations. Students live in university accommodations and participate fully in the life of the host campus. Participating students may enjoy several periods of travel before the academic year begins, during holiday periods and after the completion of the program.
To apply for a study abroad or exchange opportunity, please contact the UNT Study Abroad office.
