Global Pathways

Global Pathways is an initiative to maximize the opportunities available for UT students to study abroad. These programs are available to freshman (Maymester or summer), sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Start planning now to maximize your time overseas.

GPA requirements are a 2.00-4.00 cumulative GPA at the time of application.

Programs are available in fall, spring, Maymester, or summer.

There is no language requirement. Some programs may require language experience for certain tracks, but all offer courses in English or beginning courses in the foreign language.

There will be specific scholarships for Global Pathways programs!


Some of the foreign courses available at the exchange and affiliated programs below have already been evaluated for specific UT-Austin credit and are listed in the My Credit Abroad Database. Search the database to see how a foreign course will count at UT-Austin. We can help add a new record to the database for courses of interest not yet in the database.
