Go Abroad

You're Setting Out on a Lifelong Journey

You may have come to Cornell as a seasoned traveler and citizen of the world—or study abroad may be your first international experience. Whoever you are and wherever you've been, your time abroad will take you to new places.

Challenging yourself to live, study, and work in an international environment will shape you in ways you don't expect. Your time abroad will be among your most challenging and memorable Cornell experiences.

Before, During—and Until Next Time

This section of the website leads you through predeparture—including travel preparations and applying for housing—to the exciting moment when you're finally on your way.

Check out suggestions from study abroad alumni and our advising staff to make Your Time Abroad a success. (Here's a tip that bears repeating: Don't forget to go to class!)

Later, we welcome you back to campus when you return home. Since it may not be long before you're planning for your next global adventure, be sure to explore our resources for international opportunities after graduation, including advice on how to describe your study abroad experience to potential employers.

Happy travels!
