Program Description:

UW-La Crosse has a cooperative arrangement with UW-Platteville, through which you can participate in their study abroad programs and remain a UWL student. Financial Aid, billing of program fees, and credit transfer are coordinated through International Education & Engagement (IEE) at UWL.











UW-Platteville Education Abroad has been helping students from across the United States study at the Spanish-American Institute of International Education (SAIIE) since 1984.  SAIIE instructs American students studying abroad through UW-Platteville Education Abroad and offers an intercultural learning experience through academics, excursions, conversation partnerships with native Spanish speakers, volunteer opportunities, internships and athletics programs.  SAIIE's Athletic programs are unique as they offer student athletes the chance to add a sports element to their academic studies at SAIIE and allows them the opportunity to continue to train and practice in their chosen sport while abroad. The athletic programs that are hosted in Spring/Fall include soccer, volleyball, rugby and water polo. The Summer program covers basketball, swimming, rowing and rugby.
Since 1984, students from more than 250 universities nationwide have chosen to study abroad in Seville, Spain through UW-Platteville Education Abroad.
