Independent Experiences Abroad

Independent Experiences Abroad
 
Internships are programs abroad that provide students with temporary on-the-job training in a certain industry. Students typically complete these programs for academic credit and, in some cases, may be paid for their work. Fieldwork, Independent Study or Research involves quantitative and/or qualitative research and instructional hours that, while supervised and initiated by an instructor, feature independent work and self-direction outside of a laboratory, library, or classroom setting.

For a student to participate in an independent experience abroad, whether for credit or not-for-credit, both the student and the supervising faculty member must fill out documentation in the StudyAway Portal. Supervising faculty should complete the Independent Experience Abroad Planning Application (below), and students should complete the UGA General Independent Experience Abroad application.

For full details on the policies and procedures regarding establishment of Independent Experiences Abroad for students abroad, please see the Reporting Student Travel Policies.

All questions about Independent Experiences Abroad should be directed to Ms. Colleen Larson, Global Education Advisor at clarson@uga.edu.
