The University of Hawaiʻi Community Colleges are offering study abroad opportunities for current UH community college students.

Interested students must submit a common application by March 13, 2023.
“The value of studying abroad can be life-changing,” said Interim Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs Della Teraoka. “In addition to making new friends and lasting memories, studying abroad will help students to gain foreign language skills and cross-cultural competence. They also learn initiative and adaptability, which can give them career advantages.”
