Learn about and EXPLORE Virtual International Programs (VIPs) HERE.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every area of our lives, and students who were planning to go abroad have had to cancel their plans. As we see our classes, work, and social lives shift online, education abroad opportunities have also made the shift to virtual experiences.

In response to COVID-19 and the suspension of many education abroad programs, UNL’s affiliated partners are using their academic and professional networks to offer new virtual global learning opportunities.

  • Format: Online courses taught outside the U.S.; virtual international internships or consulting projects; virtual intensive language programs; or some combination of these.
  • Length: Programs range from 3 weeks to a full semester.
  • Locations: Programs can connect you with Australia, Austria, China, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Morocco, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, the U.K., and more.
