There are a number of third-party providers that offer study abroad opportunities for college students to pursue study abroad, intern, volunteer, and research programs outside of their home institution. Programs offering coursework abroad allow students to receive transfer credit while programs for intern, volunteer, or research may offer the option to earn Texas A&M, transfer, or no credit.
Texas A&M has chosen to affiliate with the following third-party providers. Their program offerings can be found in the Education Abroad Portal but the Portal does not list all the programs available from these affiliate providers. If you are unable to find a specific affiliated program or find one of their programs not listed in the Portal that you think is a good fit for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
