IES provides activities, services and advising for study abroad students, international students, international faculty, researchers and scholars at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. We provide services and advising on visa related matters both before and during their visit to UMBC.IES is also home of the Study Abroad Office, where UMBC's undergraduate and graduate students learn more about credit-bearing summer, semester and academic year study abroad programs.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Office of International Education Services is dedicated to supporting and facilitating global academic initiatives by advancing the international exchange of students, scholars and faculty and by providing leadership in intercultural learning through study abroad.

Services for International Students (those in F-1 and J-1 status) as well as information for prospective students can be found at this link.

International Faculty and Researchers can find information concerning their employment and visa status at UMBC.

The Study Abroad Office is the branch of IES that helps UMBC students find a summer, semester or academic year study abroad program that will let them earn credits toward their UMBC degree while having a life-changing experience in one of dozens of countries around the world.

Universities are inherently international institutions of scholarship and knowledge that we all share, and UMBC is no exception. We have undergraduate and graduate students from over 80 countries. Our faculty includes scholars from distinguished universities all over the world. Our growing international curriculum prepares our students for a rapidly changing and increasingly interdependent world.
