Education Abroad provides UCR students a gateway to high-quality international opportunities, offered through academic coursework, experiential learning, immersion to cultivate intercultural understanding and collaboration. We help students acquire the skills to work in a global marketplace, and promote access to global experiences as an integral part of a UCR education through student support services, including program advising, financial counseling, academic integration, and resource sharing.
We will help you find a program that works for you! Visit our chat room Monday through Friday to connect with our staff or student peer advisors.
Summer 2021 hours are 1:00pm-5:00pm until September 20, 2021.
Chat room hours for Fall 2021 will change:
Monday and Friday: 11:00am-3:00pm
Tuesday and Thursday: 10:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-3:00pm (not staffed during the lunch hour).

Why Go Abroad?
Personal Growth, Career Impact, Academics
- Studying, working, and living in another country gives you space to help you learn things about yourself, mature as a person, become more confident, and become more responsible.
- Going abroad tells employers you have ambition, the ability to adapt to change, and the skills necessary to succeed in a multicultural environment. It will give you an edge over competition in an increasingly globalized market.
- Not only do you get to benefit from the depth and hands-on experience while you’re studying abroad, you are more likely to have higher grades when you return.
