Group Programs:

Lasting as little as a week to as long as three months, these programs led by a WIU professor offer flexibility and international experiences to students who find it difficult to be abroad for an entire semester.  Program offerings differ from year to year. Many departments have multiple programs that rotate according to a given cycle. Please click on the link to view current listings.

Exchanges :

These are direct relationships between Western Illinois University and institutions abroad.  Exchanges are often more affordable because you pay WIU tuition and fees.


These programs are WIU-approved programs offered by study abroad providers.
