Global Education and Career Development Abroad (GlobalEd)

UW-L has joined with GlobalEd to offer study abroad and internship placements to UW-L students.  The mission of Global Education and Career Development Abroad is to provide opportunities for academic, personal and professional development through quality international education programs. GlobalEd’s programs are designed to use the international setting to enhance learning and empower students with a greater sense of self-awareness, understanding and tolerance of diverse cultural values and acquisition of marketable skill sets. This is achieved through the creation and facilitation of study abroad programs, internships, faculty-led and university-sponsored programs along with the incorporation of caring and dedicated staff, Myers Briggs training, personal coaching and career search assistance.

GlobalEd offers programs and internship opportunities throughout Spain, London, Paris, and Belgium.  Placements are offered in a variety of areas, and can vary in length.

Students are required to pay, directly to GlobalEd, a non-refundable application fee when applying to the program. The remaining program fee will be billed to your UW-L student account and can be paid as you normally pay your tuition bill.  The GlobalEd program fee includes the following:

  • Tuition and Administrative Fees

  • Centrally Located Housing

  • Arrival and Orientation

  • Cultural Activities and Excursions

  • Comprehensive Health and Medical Insurance
