About Undergraduate Learning Abroad
The Office of Undergraduate Learning Abroad (ULA) is the first stop for undergraduates seeking a global learning experience.
ULA unites the former Study Abroad Office and Office of International Program Development (IPD) in a single team dedicated to meeting Northwestern students’ diverse overseas learning needs. Through ULA and the Global Engagement Studies Institute (GESI), Northwestern offers credit-bearing study abroad, exchange, and academic internship opportunities that prepare students for success in today’s interconnected world.
Connect your academic, professional, and personal goals to an international credit-bearing experience.
Resources for Students
The ULA works with students before, during, and after their experience abroad.
While the ULA website is being built, information can be accessed on the websites for the former Study Abroad Office and the former Office of International Program Development.
