Welcome to Education Abroad &
National Student Exchange


Eastern Washington University's School of Global Learning wants you to study away as part of your degree! We offer locations throughout the world so find the destination that best suits your personal, academic and professional goals. You can choose an international option through a Faculty-led Program or our global partner programs and institutions or you can spend a semester or year studying at another U.S. university through National Student Exchange. The world is calling. Answer that call and expand your education.

What are the different options available for you to consider? Whichever choice you make, your experience runs through our Education Abroad & NSE Office.  

Faculty-led: You are going with an EWU cohort as part of a course taught by two of Eastern's instructors.

International Exchange:  You go abroad to one of our partner institutions and still get to pay EWU tuition.

Partner Programs: You go abroad with a U.S. based partner that is overseas with you to help support you doing your time abroad.

Direct Enrollment: You are a regular (non-exchange) Study Abroad student at one of our affiliated institutions.

International Internship: Instead of going abroad to study in a classroom, you go overseas to gain professional experience in your field.

National Student Exchange:  You study at an NSE partner school in either the United States, a U.S. territory such as Guam, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands, or in Canada.
