TWU Education Abroad Programs offer a variety of ways to experience cross-cultural education. Faculty-led, credit courses to other countries are offered in selected academic components throughout the University at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Some of the areas of emphasis include visual and performing arts, business, history, language, nursing, literature and comparative cultures.

In addition to the faculty-led courses, TWU provides opportunities for students to live and study for an entire summer, fall or spring session in England, Japan, France, Italy, South Africa, Spain, and other countries. Academic credit earned while participating in an education abroad program may be applied toward a degree program. However, coursework must be approved prior to departure. Interested students should seek guidance from Education Abroad Programs prior to applying for these experiences.

A variety of opportunities for financial support are available. Education Abroad Programs can assist students in identifying funding sources. All TWU students participating in education abroad are encouraged to apply for the TWU International Education Fee Scholarship.
