W&M Sponsored Semester Programs

An immersive experience.

W&M has built special relationships with four different international institutions where we offer Sponsored Semester Programs. These programs are intentional in providing an immersive experience for students.  For one fixed price and, in several cases, receiving W&M credit (see program pages for details), W&M students can study for a semester at one of the following locations:
