Exchange students: Preparing Global Citizens

Thank you for your interest in pursuing an exchange opportunity with the University of Minnesota.  The University values the many partnerships we have with overseas institutions and the mutual benefit drawn through student mobility as well as faculty and staff exchange.

This page can be used as a starting point for students in overseas institutions who would like to study at the University of Minnesota for a short-term, non-degree seeking program.  It can also be used by administrators from overseas institutions who are interested in learning more about the benefits of partnering with the University of Minnesota.

Please note that there are two sets of links directing students to various pages.  General Student Inquiries are intended for students who have not already been nominated for exchange in Minnesota.  The “Nominated Students” section is ONLY intended for students who have already been officially nominated by their home institution through a formal active exchange agreement.
