Office of International Education Update

Atlanta, GA

The Office of International Education (OIE) is the central office on campus charged with spearheading Georgia Tech’s internationalization efforts. OIE is comprised of several units, including Education Abroad, Global Internship Program, and the International Plan, that offer opportunities for your student to add an international perspective to their education. We encourage you and your student to explore our programs!

The spring semester is a busy time for OIE with many deadlines. Students who are interested in studying abroad during the summer 2017, fall 2017, or academic year 2017-2018 should make sure to submit their application materials on time. Many deadlines fall in early February 2017. For full details and information, please visit our website:


Because Georgia Tech offers so many opportunities to study abroad, we have started to offer Study Abroad 101 Sessions each regular semester Tuesday at 11 a.m. in room 211, Savant Building. These sessions are for students to come ask questions and are more in-depth than a traditional information session. The sessions are to guide students in getting started in selecting a study abroad program.


The Georgia Tech China Summer Program offers students from every year and every major the opportunity to study abroad in China. Over a nine-week period, students and faculty travel together to Tianjin, Shenzhen, and Shanghai while completing Georgia Tech coursework. Students will see sites such as the Great Wall of China and Hong Kong’s Victoria Peak while staying on track for graduation. This program will be accepting applications through February 15, 2017. For more information, email Mary Alice Allen at

Studying abroad is not the only way for students to go global. Georgia Tech’s Global Internship program has expanded 39 percent in the last academic year. With more students taking advantage of these opportunities, it is important to know when internship deadlines are coming up.
