Getting to know USG Goes Global

About USG Goes Global

The USG Goes Global program partners with USG World Regional Councils to operate cost-effective consortium study abroad programs ranging from 2-5 weeks. Programs allow for USG students, taught by USG faculty members in destinations outside of the United States, to register at their home institution and join students from 22 other USG institutions on impactful and fun learning experiences. While the majority of students are from USG institutions, students from other colleges and universities throughout the United States are encouraged to participate and can do so as transient students through the University of West Georgia. USG Goes Global students blend classroom experiences with group and individual travel as they earn academic credit. Administrative support is based within the University System of Georgia’s International Education office in Atlanta, and at the University of West Georgia.


We look forward to working again with the USG European Council, USG African Council, and USG Americas Council to operate programs in even more destinations. Program-specific information including an overview of the program, courses, dates, cost, accommodation, payment schedule and important deadlines can be found on individual program pages:
