There are many opportunities for SILS students to enjoy an international experience while studying at UNC. Gaining an international perspective on your studies adds an invaluable depth to your understanding of many issues and points of view that are important in the world today. International students who wish to study here at UNC-SILS should refer to the graduate and undergraduate program information pages for instructions on how to apply.
For undergraduate students, the UNC Study Abroad office offers opportunities at hundreds of institutions around the world to study for a summer, semester, or whole academic year.

In partnership with Charles University in Prague and University College London in London, SILS offers summer seminars in London and Prague lasting two weeks. These seminars offer practicing library professionals and students from any LIS school a chance to explore the cultural heritage of two of Europe's most vibrant, historic, and culturally rich cities. Graduate students attending an LIS school can take these seminars for credit.
In addition, Baker & Taylor, a leading worldwide distributor of books, video, music and games, offers scholarships for students attending the School of Information and Library Science for the International Summer Seminars to London, England and Prague, Czech Republic. The lucky SILS graduate students will be selected for the two-week seminars; one student will go to London, the other student will visit Prague.
