Academic Policies and Procedures
The university creates an international context for education by providing opportunities for UW-Madison students to study overseas. Because of the variety of programs, students should coordinate their study abroad program with their graduate program, the Graduate School, and International Academic Programs (IAP).
Students intending to study abroad through a UW-Madison approved study abroad program can learn more about their options through International Academic Programs.
Graduate students who are interested in conducting research abroad can register for IAP’s UW Graduate Research, which allows students to stay continuously registered as UW-Madison students, receive research credit with their faculty advisor, international health insurance, and 24/7 emergency assistance through IAP. This is an individualized experience and is not tied to a specific study abroad program. Students will need to have a high degree of independence in arranging housing and logistics for themselves.
All graduate students traveling abroad are encouraged to acquire insurance through Cultural Insurance Services International. Additional information is available here.
