About the Office of Education Abroad

The Office of Education Abroad supports international education opportunities for students at Hunter College by providing access to quality study abroad opportunities.  We are here to guide students and faculty to identify an international experience that fits their goals and interests and  believe the best means for students to achieve the intercultural expertise and multilingualism needed to become competent and engaged global citizens is through an experience abroad.

Visit our website here and choose from hundreds of study abroad options, including Hunter faculty led, CUNY-wide sponsored programs, university exchanges, and approved provider programs.

Short-term and faculty-led programs

Our Office of Education Abroad has faculty-led short term programs lasting 3-4 weeks in the winter and summer sessions. Subject area of these programs vary widely and even include unique hands-on studies of biodiversity, ecology, primate diversity, and vocalizations and behavior of wild dolphins. Credits for these short term programs range from 3-6 credits. Click here to learn more about short-term and faculty-led programs,

Semester / Year exchanges

We also have semester/year-long exchange programs with the following partner universities: 

Queen Mary College, University of London – London, United Kingdom
Deakin University – Melbourne, Australia
Universidad Antonio de Nebrija – Madrid, Spain
Universiteit van Amsterdam – Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Meiji Gakuin University – Yokohama, Japan  (Fall only)
Meijo University – Nagoya, Japan
Universidad de las Palmas Canaria – Canary Islands, Spain

Essentially, a Hunter student attends one of the above Universities and that University sends one of their students to Hunter. With the approval of Hunter advisors and faculty, students select classes that meet the credit requirements of their academic track. Students typically take anywhere for 12-16 credits.To learn more about our Semester/Year Exchanges, click here.
