Study Abroad

Novel Coronavirus

COVID-19 continues to be an unprecedented situation for everyone, but we remain committed to providing valuable international opportunities to ODU students.

Planning early for these experiences is wise and, despite the current uncertainty, you can follow these steps to prepare for a global experience during your ODU career.

You can also have a global experience without leaving your home! Check out the Virtual Study Abroad and Global Internship programs.

Your adventure is waiting.

Consider studying abroad for a semester, academic year, summer, or spring break as part of your academic experience. Studying abroad can enhance any major by building global awareness and citizenship. In addition, the culture and language learning opportunities are unparalleled.

I got to experience a new culture, meet many new friends, see new places. No books could replace the education I got going abroad.

Students should be aware that study abroad is possible and realistic, not some distant thing you always hear about.
