Undergraduate Students

The University of Chicago undergraduate college experience is defined by a culture of inquiry, discussion, and exploration.

For over 100 years, undergraduates have thrived in an environment that encourages critical inquiry and independent thought.  UChicago offers resources to support international students as they navigate unique challenges and requirements, and student groups promote and celebrate cross-cultural exchanges.  Furthermore, undergraduate students have access to the Global Studies program as well as the many globally-focused institutes and centers on campus.  

Opportunities through Career Services and faculty-taught civilization courses, language immersion, and year-long exchanges are just a few ways UChicago Study Abroad promotes dynamic engagement beyond the classroom. From the Center in Paris to the Center in Beijing to sites worldwide, UChicago students live the life of the mind abroad, one great city at a time.
