Thank you for your interest in pursuing an exchange opportunity with Western Michigan University. WMU has active exchange agreements with 29 international partners and highly values the mutual benefit drawn through student mobility and faculty exchanges.
Study Abroad at WMU is a short-term option for international students to enroll at WMU for one or two concurrent semesters to study in English.
Western Michigan University welcomes exchange and Study Abroad at WMU students from around the world each year. The Buddy Abroad Program seeks to provide support and intercultural learning opportunities for these Visiting International Peers (VIPs) by pairing them with a WMU student studying in the Global and International Studies Program. The pairing serves as a mutually educational experience in which our WMU Buddies learn about the culture and heritage of our VIPs while serving as a cultural ambassador to help VIPs learn about campus, the local community, and U.S. American culture.
