The University

With over 38.000 students and 800 academic staff, the university enjoys high prestige at national and international level and cooperates with over 250 universities world-wide.

The City

Iasi is the second most populous city in Romania. Located in the historical Moldavia region, Iasi has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Romanian social, cultural, academic and artistic life. The city was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from 1564 to 1859, then of the United Principalities from 1859 to 1862 and the capital of Romania from 1916 to 1918. Known as The Cultural Capital of Romania, Ia?i is a symbol in Romanian history. The historian Nicolae Iorgasaid "There should be no Romanian who does not know of it".

About the Program

This program is part of a consortium agreement between the Mid-America Universities International and the Utrecht Network Consortium of European Universities.  Students interested in this destination apply through the usual OU process, but are then recommended to the Mid-America Universities International (MAUI) coordinating office and are considered for final selection with other students from MAUI universities who have requested the same destination.   Students who want to participate during a spring semester may apply one cycle early, in February of the year before they would participate, although it is not required.  This program is not usually competitive.

Academic Calendar

Fall: semester: October 3 – February 12 (Christmas holiday + exam session included)
Spring semester: February 13 – June 24 (exam session included)


Students who meet the general requirements for study abroad at OU may apply for this program.

What about academic credit?

Courses taught in English can be found here.

Grades received on reciprocal exchange study abroad programs through the University of Oklahoma are posted by the Office of Admissions as Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U) on the OU permanent record.  These grades are not factored into the participant's Grade Point Average.   Because each student is enrolled in 12 credits per semester while abroad, participants are expected to enroll in an equivalent number of credits at the host university.   Academic systems around the world vary in what equals 12 OU credits.   The decision about awarding credits is made in the Office of Admissions at OU.

Where would I live?

Accommodations in the "Gaudeamus" Centre for International Exchanges are double or triple rooms.

In addition, all participants pay a $10/credit hour study abroad fee, for a total of $120/semester.
