The International Office helps UT Austin prepare students to be competent global citizens by providing access to international and cultural exchange, and by building partnerships that strengthen the university’s global reach.

The Path to Global Citizenship Starts Here

We create global connections

We collaborate with departments across campus to develop academic and research partnerships with institutions throughout the world. With our help, UT attracts distinguished international faculty and researchers representing a wide range of academic disciplines. Through special initiatives and thanks to our close relationships with prestigious global institutions, we broaden UT Austin’s global reach. Our passport services unit serves the university and Austin community, making it easier to secure required travel documents.



Educating Global leaders

We educate global leaders

Our commitment to global education is reflected in the 400 study abroad programs we offer to prepare students for success in a global economy. We coordinate innovative programs to equip students with practice skills that transfer to their careers, like the Global Professional Training and Projects with Under-Served Communities (PUC). We also bring diverse perspectives to campus through customized programs and English as a Second Language Services, and lead the region in the number of alumni serving as Peace Corps Volunteers.



Impacting the World

International education and understanding contribute to a more peaceful and prosperous world. In addition to helping Longhorns take their education abroad and bringing the world’s brightest minds to campus, we offer a variety of short-term programs, faculty and teacher trainings and customized programs. These special programs empower the next generation of international leaders to make a difference in their communities and the world.
