The International Center provides students with a variety of opportunities to study abroad. You can explore opportunities through CU Global, our web database for all students seeking a study abroad experience. We have over 40 partner universities in 25 countries, most of which provide opportunities to study for a semester as an exchange student; some partners also have research opportunities. If you prefer to go abroad in the summer, some of our partner universities have summer study programs that you can apply for as well.
Faculty and advising staff can click on the “faculty/staff” link for the information you need in your role.
We have also created a “Parent & Family Information” section for Clarkson families whose sons or daughters are planning to study abroad.
Clarkson has strategic partnerships with over 40 universities and affiliates in 25 countries that provide opportunities for student and faculty exchange, research collaboration, and short-term visits. We strive to have closer and more in-depth relationships which result in multi-faceted interactions that are of benefit to both sides. By focusing on shared interest and needs, we can move regional/national/global issues in a positive direction.
The University also works closely with our affiliate partners who can provide specialized programs for our faculty and students, including short-terms programs, service learning, and special semester programs.
