Travel the world. Meet new people.

Take engineering and computer science classes as part of your study abroad experience through our UR-affiliated study abroad programs! These programs specifically offer engineering and science classes to study abroad students. "Course equivalents" indicate where Hajim School students have previously taken courses that were credited as being equivalent to the Rochester courses listed. (This list is not all-inclusive and is updated regularly.)

For the most current list of courses that Hajim School students can take overseas and receive UR course equivalency credit, download these PDF documents for classes sorted by major and by country. If you would like you can sort through an excel list of all the courses previously taken overseas by Hajim School students.
