Queens College:

           Semester and Yearlong Programs                 

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.

For the motivated and highly focused student, Queens College offers a variety of opportunities to go abroad for a full semester or year. Please see our list of 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 Queens College student and are interested in spending a semester or year abroad, please refer to the institutions where "Student Exchange Agreement" is indicated. Exchange opportunities are only open to enrolled Queens College students. Queens College students participating in exchanges will pay CUNY tuition and will be able to apply financial aid towards their study abroad program.

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, and/or semester and yearlong opportunities. Please contact us or visit our office in King Hall 203 for more information.
