Study Abroad

NOTE: Due to the disruptions caused by COVID-19, CUNY has suspended all study abroad programs until further notice.

Study abroad programs offer students the opportunity for personal growth and global understanding. Students gain insights into other cultures, develop new perspectives, and learn to reflect on their own culture.

Working with universities worldwide, CUNY provides high quality integrated winter and summer opportunities. Prospective applicants can consult a list of programs sorted by country, college, and program or can obtain general information about study abroad. To determine your eligibility for these programs, please submit a completed inquiry form to our office and review our Steps for Study Abroad.

Before selecting a program, students should be aware of how their study abroad classes will satisfy their degree requirements. To this end, students can view their outstanding curriculum requirements through their degree audit in their CUNYfirst account.

Students are accepted to study abroad programs based on their GPA at the time of application. However, a 2.0 GPA must be maintained prior to departure in order to process an ePermit for a CUNY overseas program. Applicants who wish to determine their academic eligibility for study abroad can download their unofficial transcript.

For program details such as price, application deadlines, and procedures, please visit the host college's study abroad website or contact the host college. In addition, we kindly request a copy of any application submitted to a CUNY host college.

As an institute of the City University of New York, Queensborough is committed to providing the community it serves the opportunity to live, learn, and work free from sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, and sexual violence. Before embarking on a study abroad program, both faculty and student participants are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with CUNY's Title IX policy.

To help fund their study abroad experiences, students can review our Study Abroad Scholarship Guide in addition to researching additional scholarship opportunities.

Every fall semester, Queensborough offers selected students a free one-week study abroad program that focuses on international issues. The program is held during spring recess in Salzburg, Austria. Please be sure to review the eligibility requirements before applying to the program. In order to apply to the program, you must first confirm your eligibility by submitting a completed inquiry form. The application and reference forms are typically submitted in November.
