Deciding Where to Go

Deciding Where to Go

Are you interested in completing research abroad, but aren’t sure where to go? In searching for a place that fits your research interests and budget, here are a few things to consider:

It is also very important to make informed decisions regarding:

  • Accepting funds from other governments: will they present reputational risk to you and/or the University, if the country is known for its violation of human rights?
  • Legality of engagement and collaboration with countries, companies, individuals: are they on the OFAC sanctions list?
  • The type of activity you are planning to undertake in that country: what is the specific scope of work (SOW) for your international project and what are the related compliance requirements and risks?  To best assess these issues specific to your SOW you may need to consult with multiple offices on your campus:
  • Research administration/compliance
    • General Counsel
    • International Programs
    • ITS services
    • Purchasing and EH&S
    • Finance office
    • Human Resources
    • Risk Services

Alternatively, you may be interested in a particular region, country, or group of research participants. The resources listed on International Partnerships & Collaborations can assist you in exploring locations with existing UC partnerships abroad.
