Study Away refers to any academic experience taking place away from the Quinnipiac campus. You might study abroad in London, or you might spend a semester away at one of our programs in Los Angeles or Washington, D.C.

Check out our Featured Experiences and Featured Classes listed below for some ideas!

Talking with your advisor, viewing study away in relation to your overall academic experience, choosing a program and potential courses, and making sure, through preapprovals, that your courses away will transfer back — all these steps constitute the careful academic planning that leads to rewarding study away.

Study Away is most common in the sophomore, junior, and senior years. First Year students can participate as early as the summer after their first year.


QU students interested in studying abroad can choose from dozens of options! What countries appeal to you? Would you like to learn or practice a foreign language? Do you enjoy urban settings, or rural ones? Do you want to go abroad for a few weeks, a semester, internship or an academic year? Start exploring on the study abroad office’s website.

Any time is a good time to begin preparing for study abroad! Let your advisor know of your interest, and think about whether a full semester abroad, or a shorter winter or summer session, may be better for you — and when. If you are interested in applying or have already applied to study abroad, review our PREPARATION TIPS.

For students who have been formally admitted to a study abroad program through the DCGE:

Congratulations!  After your acceptance, there are still additional steps to take and deadlines to meet.  One of your next steps is to begin deciding what courses you’ll take at your international institution.  CAS students must submit both a plan of study form and a listing of courses they may take abroad no later than APRIL 1ST.  YOU CAN ACCESS THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SUBMIT THESE MATERIALS HERE.

UPDATE – Due to the ongoing concerns with COVID-19, the study abroad program has been suspended for the fall 2020 semester.  Please connect with the Department of Cultural and Global Engagement for more information.
