Study Abroad Programs

Studying abroad can be one of the most beneficial experiences for college students. Choosing your study abroad program can be a challenging part of getting started.

At UA Little Rock, we have more than 575 approved programs with seven Affiliate partners and two exchange partners.

If you are interested in an Internship, Volunteer, or Service Learning abroad, please email for specific information about setting these experiences up.

Exchange Partners

UA Little Rock has two international exchange partners. This means that if you select to study abroad with these institutions, you will pay tuition at UA Little Rock as you normally do, but will be responsible for working with the exchange institution staff on setting up accommodation, airfare, courses, and the details of your experience.

Our current exchange partners are:

University of Orleans, located in Orleans, France (this is best for French Language Studies)

The University of Nottingham, located in Nottingham, UK

Affiliate Partners

UA Little Rock also works with seven affiliate partners. These partners work to help you set up your entire study abroad experience. You are responsible for paying them directly, utilizing your UA Little Rock Financial Aid, and/or any internal or external study abroad scholarships you are awarded. These program providers also offer internships and research opportunities outside of the traditional semester long study abroad experience.
