Welcome to the Office of Education Abroad at Hunter College

The Hunter Office of Education Abroad supports, designs, and administers international education opportunities for students. We provide access to quality study abroad programs that engage students with the local environment through coursework, internships, community service and experiential learning opportunities.

We offer study abroad programs that grant academic credit towards graduation for students from any major. We administer a portfolio of Hunter semester-length, winter, and summer study abroad programs directly, some involving Hunter faculty. We also liaise with international universities and providers for over 300 external programs that are approved for transfer credit.

Visit our other pages to find programs, scholarship and financial aid information, applications and procedures, course credit transfers, and all other information relevant to prepare you for your abroad experience.

Important Notes:

Planning to Study Abroad

All students applying to study abroad, whether through a Hunter, CUNY, affiliated (SUNY, USAC, CIEE, IES etc.) or non-affiliated program, must first apply to the Office of Education Abroad for approval, and then may proceed with their selected program application.

Because you earn transfer credit and can apply those credits towards the fulfillment of your Hunter degree requirements (including major, minor, and most general education requirements), the Hunter Office of Education Abroad office must approve your study abroad program BEFORE you apply to the program.

Courses taken abroad also need academic department approvals in order for students to receive credit towards their Hunter degree. Details on the process can be found on our APPLY page, based on the type of program you are applying for.

Watch our video, Planning to Study Abroad (5-7 minutes) to learn about the application process, and where and how to study abroad!
