Study Abroad

study abroadWhy Study Abroad?

Open your eyes to the world
Science and technology have no borders! Invest in your future by developing cross-cultural skills that will enable you to communicate with scientists anywhere in the world.

Enhance your career
Learn how to function in a culturally diverse environment early on. Develop broader skills and the ability to adapt to new environments. Michaela Wentz '17 and Mohammad Almagweshi '18 can testify to that after their study abroad experiences in Dublin and Beijing this year. Mohammad is seen at right visiting the Great Wall of China.

Personal growth
See your culture and yourself from a different perspective. Learn to appreciate other languages and global perspectives, while better understanding your own cultural values.

Did you know?
You do not need to speak another language to study abroad. Many programs offer courses in English.

Getting Credit

For major or departmental credit:

Please note:

Courses that have been previously approved are not guaranteed to transfer to the University of Rochester. Hajim students are required to meet with their undergraduate coordinator to review proposed courses before traveling abroad. This is imperative to ensure that credit will be given for each course and that you will fulfill your graduation requirements on time. Meeting with your Undergraduate Coordinator ensures that you have an academically sound schedule for success abroad.

An oral assessment may be required for students who take CHE 244 and CHE 225 abroad with the possibility of remediation.

For elective credit, consult with a study abroad advisor.
