OU Exchange Programs

Use the links on the left to learn more about OU’s relationships with universities around the world, where you can study while paying the same rate of tuition – or even less! – that you pay while on-campus at OU. Our programs at National Dong Hwa University in Taiwan, Nanzan University in Japan, the University of Orléans in France, and Oldenburg University in Germany focus on Chinese, Japanese, French, and German respectively, allowing you to gain linguistic proficiency and cultural knowledge whether you are a language major or adding a world language to another course of study. The University of Malta and the University of East Anglia in England offer courses in English in a broad range of majors similar to OU’s academic offering. The fall international semester at Hochschule Mannheim University of Applied Sciences offers a mechanical engineering curriculum in English along with supplemental German-language instruction.
