The Center for European Studies encourages U-M students to spend time during their studies in Europe, either as part of a formal study abroad program, conducting independent research, or participating in an internship. Visit our Student Funding page for information about grants from CES and other U-M units to support internships, research projects, and study in the region.
As part of the Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia (WCEE), CES helps coordinate summer interships in Europe. In the past and currently these opportunities have taken students to Albania, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
A selection of study abroad offerings that are not administered by the University of Michigan are listed below.
Study Abroad Programs in Europe (not offered by U-M)
Some students opt to pursue study abroad programs on their own that are not sponsored by U-M (see sample programs listed below). Courses taken on non-U-M programs may or may not count for credit or towards distribution or major requirements. Please consult with the LSA Academic Advising Center and your department advisor for advice on transfer credits before enrolling in these non-U-M programs.
