UAB Office for Study Away

A great education knows no boundaries. Through UAB Study Away, you can venture to locales both familiar and exotic to take in the sights—and the insights—of different cultures, and return an engaged citizen of the world.

Our mission at the Office for Study Away is to prepare our students for success in the globalized world by administering and establishing high-quality study away opportunities.

With UAB's Study Away program, our students are going places!
