Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) of Osaka University, established in 2007, launched a study abroad program, field-study and internship, when it set up FIELDO (Fieldwork, Internship and Experiential Learning Design Office) in 2010. Since then, GLOCOL has sent approximately 400 tudents to over 30 countries across the world. A study abroad program by GLOCOL is distinct from a long-term study opportunity in universities overseas or learning a foreign language, in that it offers short-term experiential learning opportunities through a mix of observation, interaction, research and job training in various fields. The mission of GLOCOL study abroad program is in line with a ecent policy by the Japanese government to encourage students to gain global competency. GLOCOL study abroad program is in principal embedded in an academic curriculum of Osaka University, with a syllabus indicating learning objectives and credits given to participants. This article gives a detailed description of the workflow for conducting a study abroad program using cases of GLOCOL programs in order to share key aspects and lessons for those interested in launching a study abroad program. It shares know-hows including planning of a program, selecting participants, coordinating with host institutions, and administrative procedures. It also pays a special attention to risk management during programs. It offers lessons including a missed opportunity to incorporate demands by undergraduate students who were eager to participate at a study abroad program, challenges of outreaching students majoring natural sciences who were research-oriented, and difficulty of assessing the impact of study abroad programs.
