LETU Partnership Programs

A variety of courses are offered in English at HGU, including various engineering, computer science, and general education classes. HGU has hosted not only LETU students, but also LETU faculty exchanges. There's even a LeTourneau office located on the HGU campus. HGU also offers Korean language courses free of charge.

The Korean Studies Summer Program (KSSP) at Hannam University is a month-long summer opportunity to study Korean language and culture combined with a possible one-week teaching practicum. Lectures are done in English. While not limited to education majors, this does provide a great opportunity to anyone studying to be a future educator, but would also provice a great summer option for anyone studying in Arts & Sciences

Known especially for their science and engineering programs, Leibniz University offers unique study abroad options including very field-specific summer research projects.

UHI, in 13 different locations throughout Scotland, offers a wide variety of courses in English for just about any field of study. Courses taken may determine which location in Scotland is the best fit. UHI also offers the option to live with a host family.

A popular choice for LETU students in recent years, USQ also provides a wide array of course options in English for just about any major. USQ doesn't offer on campus housing, but assists students in securing local housing.

Ider University provides a great study abroad option for business students. Financial aid may also be available from Ider to help with housing and possibly travel costs. Ider also provides a unique opportunity for those wishing to teach English as a second language.

Located in Christchurch, NZ, Canterbury is another great option if you're looking for somewhere to study internationally but need a broad list of course options taught in English. LETU financial aid will not apply at Canterbury, but there may be scholarships available from the host institution.


Didn't find what you're looking for?

Check out other options through CIS Abroad, Best Semester, EF Language Courses, or make an appointment with the study abroad coordinator to talk about your options. Please note, however, that levels of LETU support and use of financial aid may vary with these programs.

CIS Abroad offers semester and summer courses and internships in 40 academic areas. LETU students get an extra $250 taken off their total bill for semester programs and $100 for summer programs.

Best Semester offers ten off-campus and study abroad programs around the world through the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) to LETU students and other CCCU member institutions. Note, however, that the Best Semester application deadline is often earlier than the LETU study abroad application deadline. Make sure to plan accordingly.

EF Language Courses Abroad provides LeTourneau students the opportunity to participate in an immersive language learning program. Travel abroad and learn a new language while experiencing the local culture!
