“We are looking forward to helping you pack your bags for your dream study abroad experience!”

No matter where in the world you want to go, we have something for you — study abroad programs, exchanges, service learning, field studies and internships — on land or at sea! Explore and discover more about our programs and find the one that’s right for you.


The Study Abroad and International Exchanges office provides diverse international programs and opportunities to WOU students and employees. The university strives to provide platforms that allow students to gain an understanding of the world’s cultures and to appreciate the wealth of ideas and experiences that make us global citizens.



Welcome to Western Oregon University! We are glad you will be joining us on campus at WOU, and we are happy to help you get started. The Office of International Students and Scholars Affairs works with the Study Abroad and International Exchanges staff to provide many services for international students. We help with paperwork, visas, pre-arrival procedures and student activities, among many other services you may need.


Getting started with study abroad

Congratulations on deciding to take your education to new locales! Studying abroad is an enriching experience that has the power to change how you feel about yourself and the world around you. We invite you to explore our programs to find your best fit, then attend one of our advising sessions for more information. In a few months you could be saying “Bon Voyage” and “Hello” to new adventures.
