Exchange Programs

Evelyn Baraké,  Sciences Po Paris, FranceWhat a great way to study and see the world!! Going on exchange offers you the opportunity to apply learning in a new academic setting and expand your horizons. You can gain valuable skills for succeeding in a global economy.  It's also a great chance to learn a different language.

You have the opportunity to study at more than 50 different Universities around the world. Current opportunities enable Western students to study in one of nearly 20 countries.
