Michigan Global Academic Programs

Michigan Global Academic Programs offer global opportunities for students to study off campus during the entire year, spring, summer, fall or winter terms. Educational opportunities are categorized into direct enrollment programs at institutions where students take university-level courses with locals or in programs structured specifically for a variety of American university students, or in University of Michigan faculty-led programs.

For courses not taught in English, these extended, in-depth opportunities allow students to achieve a higher degree of fluency. Please note that is often possible to take courses in English even in non-English speaking countries. Many of the programs also have academic themes best explored on site, such as Arts in Paris, France or Health and Nutrition in the Dominican Republic.

Students can earn Michigan in-residence credit for their coursework. Students apply to desired program. Academic requirements vary by program. Following acceptance, students register for the appropriate STDABRD course. For questions, please contact cgis@umich.edu.
