The School of Kinesiology highly values the international learning experience. GoGlobal! Center for Global Opportunities assists Kinesiology students in finding opportunities for international study, research, volunteerism, and internships. The GoGlobal! office also supports our students as they pursue funding, academic, and professional resources, and helps them determine the program that best fits their educational and personal goals.
Education abroad opportunities for Kinesiology students include:
All students must meet with a Kinesiology faculty or OUSA advisor to align their education abroad opportunity with their academic plan.
Walk-In Hours (Winter 2017): Fridays, 1:00-3:00pm
We have five international institutional partnerships, serving both U-M students and incoming students from abroad. Partner universities were carefully selected because of their parallel course content. Many U-M Kinesiology requirements can be fulfilled by participating in an exchange or education abroad experience to one of the following universities:
Join U-M Kinesiology faculty on short-term, topic-specific global programs during the summer. The programs are typically 2-3 weeks long and students earn one credit per week. Upcoming programs include:
Note: Programs offered are subject to change at any time.
Credits earned from non-Kinesiology U-M education abroad programs often apply towards prerequisite, elective or core courses. Few required core courses in Kinesiology can be fulfilled by participating in programs outside of the School of Kinesiology, although some exceptions have been made.
Education abroad opportunities are also offered through program providers. U-M Kinesiology does not have official partnerships with these organizations, and thus research and communication is left up to the student to coordinate. This list is provided as a resource and it should be noted that other program providers exist that are not included here.
