Preparation for Education Abroad

If you are considering spending a term or your entire junior year studying abroad, you should give serious consideration to your course selections starting in your first year. If you are considering a non-English-speaking country, foreign language study is of the utmost importance and should be considered early in your academic career. Students must demonstrate on their application that they have acquired sufficient area studies coursework to support their academic proposals for learning abroad. Vassar College education abroad is based on a home tuition policy and your financial aid “travels” with you.

Over one hundred programs across more than 60 countries are available to students. For more information, please visit the Office of International Programs website. You are also welcome to visit the office located in Main N-173 during walk in hours, or you can make an appointment by calling (845) 437-5260.
