Our partner program has fully developed and supported study abroad programs, exchange partnerships, and international internships that are available to students throughout the Northwest. The advantage of participating in an IE3 Global study abroad or international internship is that they help you plan your courses, plan your travel, make housing arrangements, and help you with your transfer credits upon your return to Oregon Tech. You will continue to be enrolled at Oregon Tech while you are abroad (at no additional cost) and any Financial Aid awards you have can be applied to courses required for your degree program!
Find your own experience!
Oregon Tech students are encouraged to explore the world and find a program abroad that is right for you. If you find a study abroad program or would like to take classes at an international institution, contact us and we can talk through what you will need to do in order to transfer your coursework into Oregon Tech upon your return.
