Study Abroad at the University of Oregon

United States West Eugene

Hundreds of years since its founding, the University of Oregon (UO) remains the largest in the state of Oregon, but its classes remain small, with a 17:1 student-teacher ratio. In this way, you may enjoy the perks of a large American campus (sporting events, social clubs), while benefitting from personalized instruction that is characteristic of smaller universities. Eugene’s official slogan, “A Great City for the Arts and Outdoors”, describes the lifestyle you could live there. Recreational activities such as cycling, running, rafting and kayaking are among the most popular things to do in the city Eugene. Don’t miss the Oregon Festival of Music in August and the Asian Celebration in February (which highlights the history and cultures of the countries that make up the continent), and the weekly Saturday Market, where you may shop crafts, souvenirs and more.

Academic strength: Business, Economics & Finance, Communications, Media & Marketing, Computer Science & Math, Criminal Justice & Law, Psychology

“It is for a short period, but studying abroad was such a valuable experience because it served as a stepping stone for further growth. And the experience of interacting with various people and participating with other international students gave me the driving force and memories to overcome even the most challenging difficulties in the future. If there is an opportunity, I would love to study abroad in Oregon again.”
