What is Study Abroad?

Study away encompasses both domestic and foreign academic experiences for credit in which Curry students participate either during the fall or spring semester, summer or January sessions or Spring Break.

What are advantages to Studying Abroad?

Study abroad broadens students' views of our increasingly interconnected world and prepare them to think from a global perspective.  Studying away can be life-changing for students as it shows them what they can learn and accomplish in an international setting.  Study abroad helps students to transition to independence and cultural competence.  It also makes them attractive to potential employers.

What are the requirements?

Students considering study abroad should have completed at least 24 credits at Curry at the time of study away, have a minimum overall grade point average of 2.5, and be in good financial and disciplinary standing with the College at the time of application to the study abroad program.

What types of Study Abroad experiences are available to Curry students?

Curry is committed to assisting students in all types of study away experiences, including studying away for full semesters during the academic year, for short-term travel courses during January and summer terms and Spring Break.

Third-Party Provider Programs

Curry works closely with several study abroad third-party provider programs with programs worldwide in a variety of disciplines.

Short-Term Curry Faculty-Led Programs

Each year Curry offers several short-term travel courses led by Curry faculty in a variety of academic areas.  These courses are 1-3 weeks long.

Can I get academic credit for study away?

Yes! In collaboration with Study Away Advisors, your Academic Advisors and relevant faculty students can apply credit earned while studying abroad to their General Education requirements and in some cases towards their major and minors.

Semester long study abroad satisfies the General Education Requirement (the requirement is waived but students do not receive the 6 academic credits) or the Active Learning requirement (waiver but no academic credit).

Students participating in Curry short-term faculty-led programs receive grades for courses taken on these program on their transcript.  Students studying on third-party provider programs receive transfer credit without grades for these programs.

How can I afford to study abroad?

Third-Party Provider Programs - Students pay all tuition and fees directly to the program provider, students do not pay Curry any fees and are not eligible for Curry financial aid. Students remain eligible for federal and state aid and once they complete a consortium agreement and send an invoice to Student Financial Services this aid can be released to the study abroad program. Many third-party providers also offer scholarships that Curry students can apply to.

There are several study abroad specific scholarships that Curry students are eligible for.
