Steps to Study Abroad

Investigating Study Abroad Options

  • Familiarize yourself with the Study Abroad programs open to TU students and the Study Abroad policies by reading over our website.

  • Attend one of the information sessions offered throughout the year. During this session you will find out about the variety of study abroad opportunities available. You will also be introduced to the study abroad policies, procedures and guidelines.

  • Once you have considered your motivations and requirements, you can research programs based on your academic requirements, interests, resources, and time. The study abroad resource library is a great place to start your search.

  • Consult an academic adviser to determine the credits and courses remaining to complete your degree and for advice on the courses which best fit your major. After this meeting, you should be able to identify classes which you could take while abroad to meet degree requirements.

  • Make an appointment to meet with a Study Abroad Adviser to discuss your options once you have a few programs in mind. Together, you can review the costs, application deadlines, and other requirements.

  • Visit the Financial Aid Office, or consult a financial aid representative, if necessary.

  • Research scholarship and grant options for study abroad.

Applying to a Program

  • Applications for TU programs can be found on the program pages in TU Horizons Online. TU students will need to log in using their TU netID and password and complete their profile in order to apply. Non-TU students will create a profile to continue to the application and will receive a TU netID and password upon acceptance to the program.

  • For non-TU programs, check the website or catalog for the program you have chosen.

  • For TU programs and exchanges submit your completed application to the Study Abroad Office prior to the published deadline. For Non-TU programs, complete the provider application online and let your TU Study Abroad Advisor know.

  • Apply for a passport and student visa (if one is required by your host country - check with the embassy of that country to determine if you need a visa.)

  • Congratulations! Once you have been accepted to a program, you will receive more information about your program or host institution.
  • Complete the Post Acceptance portion of your application in TU Horizons Online.
