Incoming Students

Become an exchange student in the U.S.

The UMD Study Abroad office is here to help navigate your journey to study abroad at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD). We’re located in the upper mid-west of the United States, right at the tip of the Great Lake, Lake Superior—the largest freshwater lake in the world. We would love to see you become an exchange student at UMD!

Duluth, MN

Duluth, Minnesota is a breathtakingly beautiful city during all four seasons of the year. The many city parks and forests, as well as the magic of Lake Superior, lure many people by its charm. The city boasts activities involving culture, arts, music, theatre, outdoor sports, and nature exploration. The population is around 85,000 with the neighboring city of Superior, Wisconsin (population, 26,000) across the harbor bridge.

There is much worth exploring and learning about in this mid-western town. We hope you choose to participate in an exchange with our university.
