Education Abroad Activity Submission

Before recommending any education abroad activity to students, UGA faculty or staff must submit a description of the activity to the UGA Office of International Education for review. Depending on the type of activity, additional approval and partnership documentation steps may be required. Education abroad activities requiring review include, but are not limited to, faculty-led study abroad, exchange and residential center programs as well as any instance where a UGA employee facilitates international student travel or recommends a particular international activity to a UGA student.

Please complete the submission form below to begin the review process. Upon submission, an Education Abroad staff member will contact you do discuss next steps. A step-by-step  overview of the approval procedures applicable to each type of education abroad activity can be found here. If you have questions about this form or the submission process in the meantime, please contact the UGA Office of International Education at

Activity Details

Does the recommended activity involve student supervision by a foreign educational institution? *
Is this an activity that has been previously reviewed and approved by OGE? * 🛈
Are you recommending or facilitating any of the education abroad activities listed below?
Short-term visits: These are international experiences lasting less than one month that are NOT formal or recurring Study Abroad Programs. Examples may include international performances, academic conferences, meetings, competitions and service trips among others. Short-term visits may either be offered by a university or operated by international education organizations. Some short-term trips may occur during breaks in the academic year or academic terms. *
A Study Abroad Program: It is an approved, credit-bearing education abroad experience that results in progress toward an academic degree at UGA. Such experiences are typically overseen or administered by the UGA Office of International Education. *
Internships: These are programs abroad that provide students with temporary on-the-job training in a certain industry. Students typically complete these programs for academic credit and, in some cases, may be paid for their work. *
Fieldwork: These involve quantitative and/or qualitative research and instructional hours that, while supervised and initiated by an instructor, feature independent work and self-direction outside of a laboratory, library, or classroom setting. *
Student Exchanges: These are programs in which UGA students attend a partner institution overseas for either a semester or an academic year. UGA students can take courses at partner institutions for credits that can be applied towards their UGA degree. *
Non-UGA Programs: These are programs that are either provided by another institution or by an education abroad provider. The length of external programs and costs may vary, but there may be many options to choose from in terms of location and courses. These programs are typically the best way to arrange internships, service-learning, and teaching abroad opportunities. *
Student Organization Activities: These are trips abroad organized by and for student organizations that fall within the official scope of activity of the student organization. Examples of relevant student organization activities abroad include: international organization conferences or other organization meetings; international civic and community engagement projects; group internships or research; or organizationally-sponsored site visits or events. *
