Office of International Education

The Office of International Education (OIE) at the University of Colorado Boulder provides broad opportunities in international education for students and faculty. OIE serves as host to international students and scholars who come to CU-Boulder, offers study abroad programs for students wishing to spend part of their academic careers abroad, and provides advice and assistance to students, faculty, and staff who are interested in an international dimension to their study, teaching, or research.

More than 1,800 international students and over 700 visiting international scholars come to CU-Boulder each year. Approximately one-quarter of our bachelor's degree recipients incorporate a study abroad program into their undergraduate degrees.  The campus currently sponsors over 300 study abroad programs in more than 65 countries. CU-Boulder is international!
