“Not only is it a great opportunity academically, but personally. Its a great way to push yourself to be able to learn in a new environment, but also a great way to work on being independent. You also make friends that last a lifetime.”

Diana Jimenez, Sociology and Gender and Women Studies  |  CIEE, Paris, France

COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 has and will impact study abroad’s normal operations; however, our commitment to student mobility and access to international opportunities remains central to our operations.  Please be reassured that we are taking the necessary steps to keep our community healthy and safe. As new information is received, we will post up-to-date information on program statuses and any new policies or necessary safety measures at the link below.

We are planning and advising for summer 2021 programs and beyond. A decision about whether or not summer 2021 programs will be permitted to run will be made by March 12th, 2021.  Visit for additional information, campus updates and support resources for the UIC community.

Our team is available to meet with students interested in planning for a future study abroad term through our virtual advising.  Please contact us at or schedule an appointment with a study abroad staff member.
