The Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP), located in 501 Ezekiel Cullen, is the umbrella for all study abroad programs at the University of Houston.
Four types of programs are offered:
- Faculty-Led programs, such as those offered through the Department of Modern and Classical Languages to China and France, and through the African American Studies Program to Africa.
- Special Programs under the direction of the Department of Hispanic Studies to Latin America and Spain.
- Affiliated programs through organizations such as the Council on International Education and Exchange (CIEE), and the University Study Abroad Consortium (USAC), which have established programs all over the world.
- Reciprocal Exchange Studies. Students should contact the OISP and the department or organization offering the program as much as a year in advance in order to plan their program.
With most programs, students are able to enroll (register) and receive UH credit for their study abroad courses. The OISP also has resources for numerous scholarships for study abroad that are available to UH students.
