Officials had reinstated limited study abroad programs this fall after they were cancelled during the past academic year.

The Office of Study Abroad will expand its program offerings next semester, officials said last week.

Officials announced in an email last week that they plan to further expand study abroad offerings after hosting limited travel abroad opportunities this fall in places with GW-affiliated programs. Officials had suspended study abroad and non-essential travel at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring 2020, and the cancellations continued throughout the past academic year.

The expanded offerings include GW Exchanges in places like Ireland and Japan and third-party provider programs, like the Council on International Education Exchange and Institute of Education Sciences, which are located in countries like Germany, Argentina and China.

“Many excellent programs have already been accepting applications and we’re excited to announce that, as of today, even more options have become available in GW Passport and are now accepting applications!” the email states.
