GW's approved provider programs greatly expand the options available to GW students and assure the support students need throughout the study abroad process. Study abroad providers are organizations that administer all aspects of the study abroad experience: from application management to onsite support and transcript evaluation.
Approved provider programs can be found in 60 countries and allow students to complete courses at study centers designed for American students or at local institutions through direct enrollments. Many programs also include internship placements and independent research, as well as local orientation programs and educational excursions.
GW works with many providers, some offering dozens of programs while others only one. The availability of any particular program is subject to change without notice, and only a select number of programs from a particular provider may be approved. Students may browse approved program options by region or search for programs using GW Passport.
