UW-Madison offers over 260 programs in more than 65 countries. Programs vary in length, level, academic focus, teaching format, language requirements, cost, and degree of independence demanded of the participant. Each program is expected to meet UW-Madison’s high academic standards and to integrate with the on-campus curriculum. IAP study abroad programs are open to all UW-Madison students who are in good academic and disciplinary standing. Some of our programs are also open to non-UW-Madison students.
