Global Connections

The University of Chicago's reach extends around the world. Expand your perspective through international opportunities at our centers and campuses in Asia and Europe, or find unique academic experiences through one of our exchange programs.

International Campuses


The University's Center in Paris includes seminar space, a computer lab, library, and offices. The neighboring French National Library and other libraries and archives throughout Paris serve as resources for up to a dozen graduate students at any given time.


Opened in 2010, the University of Chicago Center in Beijing offers graduate students a base when conducting research in the region. Students can also find opportunities to teach courses at the Center, or to participate in and help plan international, interdisciplinary conferences.

Chicago Booth International Campuses

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has campuses in Hyde Park, downtown Chicago, London, and Singapore. Students in the Executive MBA Program take courses in all three cities, while full-time, evening, and weekend students can take part in academic programs, career development opportunities, and student activities in a wide variety of countries.

Exchange Programs

The University participates in two domestic academic exchange programs: the CIC Traveling Scholar Program and the Exchange Scholar Program, through which students can study for up to one academic year at another institution. Both programs allow doctoral students to take advantage of special educational opportunities at other institutions (e.g., library holdings, classes, research centers, a particular faculty member).

Several University departments also offer international exchange opportunities specific to their program. Information on these programs can be found on departmental websites or through academic advisors.

International Fellowships

UChicago students are top earners of prestigious scholarships and fellowships. In the last five years, our graduate students have received over 60 Fulbright IIE U.S. Student Program Fellowships, 100+ National Science Foundation Graduate Research fellowships, 20 Jacob K. Javits Fellowships, and 15 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/American Council of Learned Societies Dissertation Completion Fellowships.
