Nearly 1,300 UC students studied abroad in 2022-23, a return to three-quarters of the numbers who studied internationally pre-COVID.
The opportunity for international education was especially vital for a generation of students whose education went remote during the pandemic. Study abroad connected them beyond the classroom to prepare them for a future that is more than ever global.
UC’s signature model of faculty-led study abroad programs integrated into specific courses returned strongly. Over 70% of study abroad participants traveled with faculty-led groups in 2022-23.
Such international opportunities integrated into students' degree and career plans are a vital component of the University of Cincinnati’s Next Lives Here promise of experiential learning for all students, regardless of their program of study.
