We Bring the World to UT and UT to the World

What starts here changes the world is more than just a motto. It’s an action the students, staff and faculty at The University of Texas at Austin prove every day. It’s also something that the International Office helps make possible through our diverse menu of programs and services that create opportunities for international experience on campus and beyond the Forty Acres.

Through each of our units, programs and services, we not only enrich the academic and social experience at UT, we serve the entire Austin community by creating opportunities for robust international exchange.
