Other options for students interested in studying abroad are trips sponsored by UT's Foreign Language department. These programs are especially helpful for students seeking intensive language programs. Additional information is also available from UT's Study Abroad Office and from the USAC central office.

The University of Toledo is a member of University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) which offers opportunities  in 50  different programs in 27 countries. Currently more than 800 universities around the world participate with USAC program.  In addition to the USAC programs, there are study abroad programs led by College of Business faculty members. These trips are often 2-3 weeks in length. Examples of College of Business faculty trips include eastern Europe, western Europe, and Asia. Opportunities vary from year to year. The International Business program has recently gone to Japan over Spring Break to study business culture in the country. Be sure to check your email and student newsletters for updates regarding these special travel opportunities. Students typically enroll in a combination of business courses (taught in English), non-business courses (taught in English), and foreign language courses (at the student's option).
