W&M Semester / Year Programs

Sponsored Semester ProgramsStudents at St Andrews

W&M students may study at several international universities with which the Global Education Office  has built special relationships. In Sevilla, Spain students enroll in one or two courses designed jointly by local and W&M faculty, and select remaining courses from the full university catalog. In La Plata, Argentina  students enroll in four courses designed by local and W&M faculty with a human rights theme and then take one or two courses at Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Students pay one fixed program cost to study in Argentina, France, Spain, and England. La Plata and Sevilla coursework appears as William & Mary credit and grades on transcripts; students studying at Oxford and Montpellier earn transfer credit upon their return to W&M (grades are not posted on the W&M transcript). Learn more about all of our programs in the study abroad portal.

The application deadline for sponsored semester programs with a Fall or Academic Year option is mid-March, with the exception of Hertford College, University of Oxford which is December 1st the year prior.

The application deadline for sponsored semester programs for a spring is beginning of October, with the exception of Hertford College, University of Oxford (December 1st the year prior).  The application deadline for sponsored semester program for fall is mid-March.

Tuition Exchange (Semester/Year) ProgramsSalzburg Building

The Global Education Office administers exchange agreements with over 15 international universities, which receive W&M students and send their students to our campus. W&M students apply for this study abroad through W&M, and pay regular W&M tuition plus a $375 application and off campus fee. Students pay room and board directly to the study abroad institution, so exchanges are an exceptional value for Virginia residents. Students select courses from the host university catalogue and earn transfer credit upon their return to W&M (grades are not posted on the W&M transcript).

The application deadline for exchange programs with a Fall or Academic Year option is mid-March.

The application deadline for exchange programs with a Spring option is beginning of October  with the exception of University of Nottingham (mid-March the year prior), and Keio University, McGill University, and National University of Singapore (early September).  

Please note that the Global Education Office also offers an assisted enrollment option for students going to St Andrews.  This option is usually the best for out-of-state students, or those students not selected for the St Andrews exchange, as it is often competitive.  For students wishing to apply for that option, go here:  St Andrews Assisted Enroll.
