Application Process for UNC Exchange Programs
  1. Getting Started - Contact and meet with the Student Abroad staff, Josie Bewsey, to discuss your interest in study abroad. Please call 227-2569 or email to schedule an appointment. Talk to your faculty or departmental advisor about study abroad. Be sure to download a copy of the Exchange Process Checklist and Application & Selection Checklist to keep track of your progress.
  2. Define Your Goals, Identify Your Options - Why do you want to study abroad? Where? Do you want to study in another language or in English? Would you like to study abroad for a year or semester? Do you want a program that requires a lot of independence and initiative, or do you prefer one that handles more of the arrangements for you and lends more on-site support? How much money can you afford to spend?
  3. Apply!  - Submit the application on or before the deadline. You will need to meet any eligibility requirements, selection criteria, and deadlines set by IPS. This application may be downloaded and printed directly from this website. Turn in your application to IPS by the designated deadline.
