Exchange Programs

Through exchange programs, CNS students are able to attend foreign partner institutions and take regular university courses alongside students from the host university. This is an ideal option for students looking to live abroad for an extended period while taking a full load of courses that will help them stay on track for graduation at UT. (Students seeking shorter-term experiences should explore UT faculty-led programs.)

Programs for Science Majors

UT Austin has exchange programs with over 150 of the world’s most respected universities, giving students access to some of the best institutions around the world.

Carol ReyesCarol ReyesTo take the guesswork out of selecting the right exchange program, we have created study abroad guides specifically for science majors. Each guide provides a list of 12-15 CNS Premier Partner Universities, highly-ranked exchange programs that have been carefully pre-screened and selected by our faculty.

Pre-Approved Coursework
