What is UTNY
UTNY is an internship-first experiential learning program that provides registered UT Austin
students the opportunity to live, work and learn in one of the most dynamic metropolitan cities
in the world.

Students must be currently enrolled, degree-seeking Liberal Arts undergraduate students
accepted into the UTNY program for Spring 2023. Students intending to enroll in LA 620wb
must be interning for a minimum of 40 hours per week. Learn more about hours and weeks

Financial Aid
Students utilizing financial aid can apply their aid toward participation in UTNY. Similar to study
abroad programs, a student’s financial aid package may be adjusted to cover the additional
costs associated with attending UTNY.

UTNY classes are in-residence, so students should be prepared to pay normal UT tuition for
their academic credits and coursework and a fixed UTNY program fee. Lastly, students pay for
their own housing. They should also budget for necessary living expenses such as food,
transportation, and entertainment. Find program estimates on UTNY.

A resume and essay question are required as part of the application.

Discover the potential impact of a global experience on your personal, academic, and professional life.

This session will give you the tools you need to explore if education abroad is right for you. We will discuss how it is financially feasible – even beneficial – and how to gain meaningful credit toward your degree. We will highlight some programs perfect for COLA students, including exchange and affiliate programs, international internships, and faculty-led programs.
