Queens College Academic Partnerships

Through the Office of Global Education Initiatives and the Education Abroad office, Queens College has signed agreements for Study Abroad programs, Student Exchanges and/or Faculty Exchanges with many academic institutions abroad. As a result of these agreements, Queens College has--or is creating--collaborative programs around the world, including short-term study abroad, semester- and year-long study abroad, joint research, and faculty exchanges. These partnerships are key to the Queens College strategic plan, which calls for internationalizing the campus and educating QC students to be global citizens.

Please see the list of our partners below. Under each institution it is indicated as to what type of agreement Queens College currently has with that particular institution. If you are a student and interested in spending a semester or year abroad, please refer to the institutions where "Student Exchange Agreement" is indicated. If you are a faculty member and are interested in teaching abroad, please refer to the institutions where "Faculty Exchange Agreement" is indicated. All of the institutions where "Study Abroad Agreement" is indicated are in some way involved with Queens College Education Abroad short-term programs during the winter and summer sessions at Queens College. Please contact us or visit our office for more information.
