Welcome to VMI Education Abroad !
Every year, more than 100 cadets pursue an international learning experience. By combining intellectual quest with firsthand exposure to different cultural traditions, cadets gain a global perspective and acquire important life skills—critical thinking, independence, flexibility, resilience, and the ability to interact and communicate across differences.  Cadets often describe their education abroad experiences as extremely rewarding and life-changing. We invite you to take advantage of the education abroad opportunities and add an international dimension to your VMI education!
