Academics

Study abroad offers a great opportunity to gain a deeper perspective on a topic as well as the chance to explore new subjects as well as languages and cultures.

Courses and Credit Approval

Your Education Abroad Advisor in Global Learning can't tell you what classes you should take while abroad. To find information on specific courses available to you through this Global Learning program, go to the programís website by following the link in the ìSnapshotî section of the Overview page.

To obtain approval for your credits earned abroad, Use your college's Study Abroad Course Approval and Participation form, which you will access from your Global Learning application. This form is a required part of the application process and must be completed (all signatures in place) by the deadline. 

Remember that you must study the language (or take a course in the language) of the host country when studying in a non-English speaking country for a semester or year.

On the Global Learning website you will find a list of current returned students who have agreed to share contact information, stories from students in their own words, and selections of recommended programs in these categories: Cornell Global Programs, College Administered, Global Issues, STEM-focused, and Beyond Europe.
