The cost of a study abroad semester is comparable to current education costs in the US, where an average semester at a public university costs $11,413. The approximate cost per semester to study abroad varies between $7,000 and $17,000 according to which university is chosen. See the example budgets listed below, showing the cost comparison between a university in the United States and a semester abroad in Chile.
The cost of your semester overseas will be determined by your university’s program in that country. If you would like to serve in a country where your university does not have a program, Globalscope staff can help you enroll independently in the university overseas. You may email Globalscope for help with enrollment and cost questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). The only fee associated with our program is a $200 deposit.
