Where in the world will your path take you?
The study abroad staff of the Office of International Education (OIE) support Carnegie Mellon students through every step of the process! To begin exploring opportunities for a study, work/intern, or research abroad experience, we encourage students to first submit an electronic Study Abroad Interest Form via our CMU Study Abroad Portal.
Our CMU Study Abroad Portal is the best place to find out how to schedule a one-on-one meeting with a study abroad advisor, when to attend a Study Abroad Information Session, and search for opportunities abroad. Students should also consider attending our annual Study Abroad Fair or connecting with returned students via the E-Peer Advisory. We also recommend that students communicate with their academic department and attend departmental information sessions on studying abroad if available.
Carnegie Mellon students and alumni report that studying abroad was one of the most valuable experiences of their lives. It is a time of growth and change in many areas: academic, professional, personal, and intercultural. Students report that studying abroad provided them with increased problem solving skills, better foreign language abilities, new professional contacts, more independence, an enhanced awareness and appreciation of their home culture, and a stronger interest in other cultures.
