VUSE Study Abroad


Yes, engineering students DO study abroad. When and where will your learning adventure take you? To the beauty and history of Europe? To some of the world's fastest growing economies in Asia?  To the warmth - atmospheric and personal - down under in Australia and New Zealand? There are few life experiences that are truly transformational; studying abroad is one of them. Change your life and your resume by studying abroad. You can choose from more than 25 direct-credit programs in engineering and over 100 other direct-credit programs. Financial aid applies to study abroad during the academic year.
