When I went to college I never got to reside outside of New Jersey. In my day far fewer students studied abroad, although college was much cheaper. But my loss is today’s students’ gain. Every school that I have visited offers study abroad. However, different programs take different approaches.
Here are two good examples.
Service projects led by faculty members are one example. These might run a full semester or during break times. Students sign up for these projects as they would for a regular class, so registration is seamless.
Ideally, any credits accumulated at the partner university will seamlessly appear on the transcript. However, it’s wise to check that in advance. While a course in, for example, German classical music may likely transfer towards a music degree or a German degree, a course in the History of Heavy Metal Music in Postwar Germany might not transfer to anything.
