Welcome to the Office of Education Abroad at Hunter College!

Our deadline to apply for Winter and Spring 2023 programs has now passed. We look forward to receiving your application for Summer and Fall 2023 programs! Please feel free to contact our office with any questions, or consult our Advising page to set up an appointment.

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, and experiential learning opportunities. Our office: 

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

The study abroad application and preparation process takes time! We recommend that you begin exploring program options at least a full semester before you plan to study abroad. 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.

Study Abroad 101 Sessions are BACK! Our next round of sessions will take place in January 2023. Dates and registration links will be published in December 2022. Visit our Events and Study Abroad 101 page for more information and to register. 

Starting August 1, 2022, we have begun reviewing applications for Winter 2023 and beyond.

  1. Before you submit an application, please review our program pages and identify at least 3 programs — one first-choice program and two backup programs — that you wish to apply to.
  2. Our application is now live online, and you are able to submit an application.

Important Notes:

Planning to Study Abroad

All students applying to study abroad, whether through a Hunter, CUNY, affiliated (SUNY, USAC, CIEE, CIS, ICDS, 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT DEADLINES: Preparing to study abroad takes time and planning! If you are interested in studying abroad, please be mindful of both our office's and your program's application deadlines. For Winter and Spring 2023 programs, we can accept applications no later than October 28, 2022. For Summer and Fall 2023 programs, we will accept applications no later than March 1, 2023. Please note that your program of choice may have an earlier deadline, such as our semester-long exchanges!

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 pages, based on the type of program you are applying for.
