Study Away

Semester Abroad Opportunities

The university is affiliated with several organizations that provide study abroad opportunities around the world. Enrolling in a program offered by any of them will allow you to study abroad while remaining enrolled at Missouri Western. Our staff and faculty will work closely with you to choose a program and classes that will move you toward graduation. It’s a good idea to meet with your faculty advisor and our staff before finalizing your decision.

Below are some companies our students have used successfully in the past, though there are also many others. It is important to select a reputable company to work with.

Deciding to spend a semester abroad will give you more freedom of choice than any other type of study abroad program. It is, however, relatively expensive, so be sure to check the “Financial Aid” section of this web site early.
