Welcome New Vols!

New V.O.L. Experience

Discover why you should study abroad during your time at UT and how the Programs Abroad Office can help you do so.

Our office offers a variety of academic, global experiences that will not only be the highlight of your time on Rocky Top, but also help you grow academically, professionally, and personally.

As a first-year student you can participate in a study, intern, research, or service-learning experience as early as the summer after your first year. (Transfer students may do so after completing one semester on campus.) Regardless of what you decide to study at UT, there is a “best-fit” program for you that will keep you on track for graduation, and we’re here to help you find it.

We invite you to explore our website and the resources we have compiled below. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to learn more about studying abroad during Welcome Week in August as well as our fall Programs Abroad Fair later in the semester. Keep an eye out for additional in-person and/or virtual opportunities to engage with the Programs Abroad Office by following us on social media.
