Summer Study Abroad

The University of Richmond offers international study opportunities during the summer months. When going overseas for an academic year or semester is not an option, summer is the perfect time to gain an international experience in a more compact timeframe. Study abroad experiences earn college credit as detailed for each program.

All dates and costs are approximate and subject to change, as are program details. The University of Richmond reserves the right to alter the program costs as a result of fluctuations in international currency.

Application requirements are unique to individual programs. Review each program’s Fees & Timelines carefully and submit on time.

Application deadline: Extended to February 24, 2017!

Scholarships: UR students are eligible for the Holt Summer Study Abroad Scholarship. Selected recipients will receive approximately $2,000 toward the cost of an approved UR Summer Study Abroad program.

Travel notice: Traveling with Medications advisory from the U.S. Department of State Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC).

Refund Policy notice: If a party other than the student will be paying for the Summer Study Abroad program, be sure to discuss this commitment and our Refund Policy with the other party before signing agreements in Gateway Abroad.
