VCU Education Abroad

Studying abroad is one of the most rewarding experiences a student can have. Virginia Commonwealth University’s Education Abroad office is dedicated to providing a wide array of study abroad opportunities to VCU students wishing to add an international experience to their academic studies. We also assist international exchange students who wish to study at VCU for one or two semesters.

Studying abroad will help you gain a greater degree of intercultural understanding, a higher level of foreign language proficiency and a competitive edge in an increasingly globalized market. We encourage students from every academic discipline to pursue a part of their university education in an international community.
