  • Short-Term/Faculty-Lead Study Abroad: winter break, spring break, spring (May Abroad), May term, summer I and summer II programs are study abroad options that are part of a three-credit-hour CWRU course (commonly called “short-term” or “faculty led”)
  • Summer Study Abroad: summer study abroad is directly enrolling in summer courses at any of CWRU’s partner institutions.
  • Research/Internship/Co-Op Abroad

Case Western Reserve University only partners with the highest caliber schools around the world. Participating in a long-term program ensures that you will have an enriching academic and personal experience abroad. Here are several schools Weatherhead students may wish to consider.
