The Carolina experience doesn’t necessarily have to start in Chapel Hill. For some Tar Heels, it begins with a semester abroad.

Carolina Global Launch enables first-year students to study abroad at one of our partner universities during their fall semester and then enroll at Carolina in the spring. Through the program, students immerse themselves in a new culture, earn credits toward their Carolina degrees and get to know other new Tar Heels.
