Study Abroad Opportunities

Lander offers several types of study abroad opportunities.



Study Tours

Every year, Lander faculty offer short-term overseas academic programs which cover a variety of topics. Study Tours are typically one to three weeks in length, and take place during winter break, spring break, and summer. During the 2021-22 year, Lander offered four enticing Study Tours:

  • Teacher Education in Costa Rica
  • Spain and Venice Biennale Tour
  • Medieval British culture and literature in England and Scotland
  • Photography in Colorado


Study Tours for the 2023-2024 academic year will be announced at the beginning of Fall semester.

Semester & Summer Partner Programs

Lander has developed direct partnerships with a number of overseas institutions, allowing students to live and study abroad for a semester or a year. Students enroll directly at the overseas institution. Current Lander partner institutions include:

  • the University of Winchester, in Winchester, England
  • TANDEM Escuela Internacional in Madrid, Spain
  • ALI Abroad / University of Alicante, in Alicante, Spain
  • Universidad de Monterrey, in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, Mexico
  • the University of the Aegean, in Rhodes, Greece
  • Salzburg College, in Salzburg, Austria
  • Kyungpook National University, in Daegu, South Korea
  • University of Trento, in Trento, Italy



Semester & Summer Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs are available through third-party providers. They may be for a summer, semester, or an entire year overseas. In addition to classes, affiliate programs may also offer internship and volunteer opportunities. Lander works with the following providers-chosen for the quality of their programs-offering access to a multitude of university programs around the world:

Internships & Volunteering

Internship and volunteering opportunities may serve your academic program better than a traditional semester or summer abroad. In addition to those offered on affiliate programs, Lander students can access challenging internship and volunteer opportunities through Projects Abroad.

Non-Lander Programs

A non-Lander program is one that is not affiliated with Lander University through an agreement. Lander typically requires students to attend Lander-vetted study abroad programs, but may approve study abroad at a non-Lander program if there is a compelling academic reason.

If you participate in a semester or year-long non-approved program, you are not considered a Lander student for the duration of the program, and this may have a significant impact on your financial aid. You will also need to apply for re-admission in order to return to Lander and continue your studies here. You are strongly encouraged to consider the many programs offered by Lander before pursuing the non-approved study abroad program process.
