For students interested in participating in an immersion experience that will help them greatly improve a second (or third language) and gain the most perspective on another culture, the following are some of the programs offering such opportunities.  Exchange programs are excellent options for adventurous students as they will be enrolling in courses within the host university with host nationals and native speakers. Many of the programs below also offer homestays. Exchange programs and Maryland-in programs can be very affordable for in-state students, for whom they are the cost of regular UMD in-state tuition.
