Study Abroad in East Asia

The University of Kansas promotes international exchange as a vital link in education. Students may choose from semester, academic year, and summer programs in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. These vary in structure from exchanges and individually arranged programs to group programs led by KU faculty members.

Study abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity whose benefits go far beyond academic learning. Students develop skills in intercultural communication and problem-solving applicable to everyday life. Students learn to become independent and take initiative, and they gain self-confidence, flexibility, perseverance, and appreciation of diversity. An international experience strengthens career opportunities and increases awareness of the interconnected nature of the world. The global character of the economy has prompted more students to experience cross-cultural linkages first-hand.

All study abroad programs are administered through the KU Office of Study Abroad. If you are interested in spending part of your academic career in East Asia, please contact Renee Frias in the Office of Study Abroad, Lippincott Hall, Room 108.

New CEAS Study Abroad Program

The University of Kansas recently participated in the Kakehashi Project-Bridge for Tomorrow, a 10-day study abroad trip to Japan for 23 students from Kansas universities. In the 2014-15 school year CEAS will host a group of students from Japan.

A group of KU students and other students form Kansas universities travelled to Japan this summer as part of the Kakehashi Project. Watch this video to see highlights from their trip and hear what they learned from the experience.
