Take a look at what some of our 300 students abroad discovered last year. Then become one of them! Challenge yourself to learn anew and interact with people from around the world, people who have been raised in a different culture and tradition. Give yourself the chance to open new doors – you'll be surprised at what you might find when you do.



Get started today.

Step 1: Find a program

Search for your study abroad program at our online application system,

Horizons. You can search by your major or field of study, location, term, length of program, provider, or language. If you're not sure where to start, complete this form and a representative from the Education Abroad Office will contact you.

Step 2: Meet with an advisor

We're happy to help answer any questions you may have about what you can study abroad, where you can go, and how you can afford it. Please click on "Advising Appointments" on the left sidebar of this page to schedule an appointment with your Education Abroad Advisor. We also accept walk-ins.

Step 3: Apply

In order to make applying easier for you and to protect the environment, we have an online application. Once you have found a program you're interested in, make sure to read the Deadlines & How To Apply as well as the Policies and Procedures to understand the application process. The scholarship application will be available online once you have completed the application for your program.

After you're accepted

You're not alone in this process. Before you go, you will attend a study abroad orientation to learn more specific details about your program and activity, how Murray State will respond in an emergency, how to remain safe and healthy while abroad, and how to maximize your learning inside and outside the classroom. Family members are invited to attend orientation with you.
