Education Abroad

Develop a Faculty-Led Education Abroad Program

Faculty-led education abroad programs are among the best ways to internationalize your discipline and teaching portfolio. These programs pair courses with a short-term study tours abroad that range in length from a week to six weeks, run during academic breaks, and typically are more affordable for students than many other education abroad options. These opportunities can be a very rewarding experience not only for the students, but for you as the faculty leader, as well. 

The left menu bar links to pages that provide helpful information as you build and launch your faculty-led program. If at any time you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Brent Holliday, the Education Abroad Assistant Director, at bholliday@ksu.edu or 785-532-5990.

Program Proposal Submission Deadlines

Please note: Proposal submission deadlines for spring and summer 2021 study tours have been temporarily waived to allow for more flexibility as more normal university operations are phased in. Proposal submission deadlines will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout summer 2020. 

There are current travel warnings and advisories with the U.S. Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as a travel ban instituted by the university. For faculty who submit proposals for spring or summer 2021, international travel is conditional on these advisories and guidelines.


To ensure that students have time to consider and apply for your program, we have set the following deadlines to guide your submission of a proposal. We arrange deadlines based on the term you will award course credit.

Course Term:Normal Proposal Deadline:
Fall SemesterDecember 1st of the Prior Year
Spring SemesterMay 1st of the Prior Year
Summer SemesterAugust 1st of the Prior Year

Late Submissions

If you're unable to submit your proposal before our established deadlines, don't worry! We're still happy to work with your program. We only want you to be aware that late proposals may take more time to proof and publish than those that are submitted on time. In addition, a late submission may affect adversely the marketability and long-term success of the program. If you have any concerns about the timing of the process, let us know, and we'd be happy to work with you on a case-by-case basis.
