A WORLD OF POSSIBILITY FOR STUDENTS
Starting in 1923, when University of Delaware students set sail for the nation's first study abroad program, UD has fostered international education and multicultural understanding. Today, more than one-third of UD's students travel globally during their education and nearly 5,000 students and families from across the globe call UD home.

Our Promise to You
IGS continues to closely monitor the evolution of the novel (new) coronavirus (known as COVID-19) and follows guidance given by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) when making decisions regarding our upcoming education abroad programs. Our students’ health and safety are our top priorities.
If UD decides to cancel a future study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by IGS).
