Summer Programs

Summer Programs

Summer programs are a great way for you to experience life in another culture without disruption to your academic plans. Some programs even advance their academic plans by offering tracking courses as well as technical electives. These short courses are available to students from many disciplines and all over the world. Summer programs are a fun way to gain an international experience while learning new skills, and making new friends!

Please note that specific dates of programs and deadlines will likely vary slightly each year; make sure to check respective websites for most updated dates.

Exchange Programs

Exchange programs offer affordable UF tuition while studying at a foreign university. A UF student enrolling at an exchange partner school will have the opportunity to take classes, or do research with students from the host university as well as students from all over the world. Students on an exchange program will be responsible for finding their own housing – either in dorms/residences through the host university or through a third-party company.

UF-HWCOE Sponsored Programs

UF-HWCOE Sponsored Programs are programs that are developed and taught by UF faculty or staff. The programs are usually held in the summer, although there are a handful of programs that are designed for spring break, or spring recess. The faculty/staff will accompany the students either for a partial or entire duration of the program. The courses are taught in English. These programs can be study, intern, or research with varying degrees of hands-on experiences. Oftentimes, programs include accommodation, tuition, some excursions, and site visits to local universities, research centers, or industry. These programs offer a unique combination of theoretical teaching, hands-on experience, cultural immersion, and professional development.
