Program Types

At CWRU, there are four main types of study abroad programs.

CWRU short-term programs
In a CWRU short-term study abroad program, a CWRU faculty member takes a group of students to another country as part of a course. The overseas portion of a short-term is usually between one and six weeks in duration and takes place during Winter Break, Spring Break, or over the summer. You can see a list of CWRU short-term programs here.

Internships and Research
Some CWRU students complete internships, research, and co-ops abroad. The Office of Education Abroad can share with you various internship opportunities, but note that it’s very difficult to find paying internships abroad due to visa regulations. However, the Office of Education Abroad is happy to share with you tips and procedures for searching for internships, research, and co-ops abroad. After you’ve secured an internship, research position, or co-op, the Office of Education Abroad will work with you to ensure that you are registered properly at CWRU and that you receive health insurance and cultural preparation for your experience abroad.
