Affiliation Agreements with Program Providers
VCU has affiliation agreements with various third-party study abroad program providers and host institutions abroad, some of which we have worked with to create customized faculty-led programs. Different than travel agents or providers, these international education organizations are each able to offer customized academic programs in various destinations and in collaboration with many host institutions around the world. You may consider connecting with one of these providers to coordinate your own study abroad program.
