Welcome to the International Programs Office (IPO) at the University of Idaho, where opportunities to engage internationally surround you. In order to succeed in a complex, interconnected world, students, faculty, and staff must develop a range of intercultural skills.

Below are just a few ways IPO helps you engage with the world:

  • Live, study, and interact with 920 international students from 78 nations from throughout the world. Talk about a powerful social network! 
  • Study abroad in Spain, Italy, Ghana, China, Brazil, Nepal, Australia, or one of the other 70 countries where UI has established programs with 400 universities. 
  • Receive funding to study or work abroad through our “International Experience Fund.” 
  • Enhance your marketability with an international internship in one of 32 countries. 
  • Study and conduct research with internationally recognized faculty from the U.S. and abroad. 
  • Participate in cultural events, programs, and activities that occur regularly. 
  • Teach abroad through an established program or design your own international course. 
  • Enhance your English skills in the intensive American Language and Culture Program. 
  • Connect to the local community through programs such as Friendship Families, Conversation Partners, and other international outreach activities.

The IPO staff is passionate about transforming lives and supporting a globally engaged university community. To learn more about your international opportunities, review or visit the International Programs Office, located in Living Learning Community Building, #3.
