What is a direct exchange?
Students from UMaine and one of our partner universities swap places for the year or semester. These programs are great for building your independence and having a more immersive experience. Spaces are limited each year, so apply to these as early as a year in advance! 

  • Want to search by Major or term? Use the Advanced Program Search in the left-hand menu!
  • Want to apply? Find your desired program using the search and click "Apply" on the right. The program will be added to your Applications page in your personal Abroad Office account.
  • Remember, you will need to have a meeting with the Study Abroad Advisor before your application will be approved!
