Study Abroad

Each year hundreds of students participate in academic experiences abroad. The majority of UTRGV students enroll in Vaqueros Study Abroad programs led by our own UTRGV faculty. These programs are a few weeks in length and offer students the chance to experience a new culture with the close support of fellow UTRGV students and a faculty member. Through exchange agreements with partner institutions abroad UTRGV students also enroll directly in courses at a university abroad for a semester or longer. Finally, UTRGV students can also attend study abroad programs managed by third-party entities. 

Agreements of Cooperation

Schools and Departments conducting research or academic exchanges with institutions abroad rely on International Programs and Partnerhsips to provide support and guidance on the establishment of Agreements of Cooperation. We have the experience and knowledge to complete this legal process in compliance with established institutional norms. Create a Partnership

Visiting Scholars

International Programs and Partnerships provides US immigration leadership for obtaining J1 visas for international scholars conducting research with Schools and Departments at UTRGV. We also facilitate the integration of these scholars into the campus community through logistics support and event planning.
