You can be a catalyst in our pursuit of integrating international education into every student's experience at UT. Here are a few ways you can help students access transformative international academic experiences that will prepare them to be global leaders and excel in a competitive international workforce.
Learn about the hundreds of study abroad programs offered at UT Austin, including short term, semester-long, internships and service-learning opportunities. Explore options by language, area of study and location to help your students find the perfect match for their interests and goals. Connect with the International Office on social media to learn about your students' achievements abroad.
Integrate study abroad into your curriculum
Encourage your students to undertake high-quality courses at leading universities across the globe that complement your department's degrees, research and coursework. Make experiential learning, cross cultural communication and first-hand international exchange a part of each student's holistic academic experience to prepare them for a successful career.
Participate in events
There are numerous study abroad and International Office events of which you can take advantage. Attend the Study Abroad Fair at the beginning of each semester. Present as a guest speaker about your own international experience at study abroad information sessions throughout the year. Offer your own expertise and suggestions as you learn more about the options available to your students.
Visit the International Office
Stop by the International Office or make an appointment to talk to a program coordinator and pick up materials to share with your students. Learn about not only what we're doing in study abroad, but also in bringing top-quality international students to the Forty Acres and how you can participate in our international community.
Host a presentation
Invite a study abroad program coordinator or student peer advisor to speak in your class. Our staff and students are available to make presentations about the study abroad process or specific programs related to your class. Let us know what you want us to focus on so we can tailor the presentation specifically for your students.
