Study Abroad

The opportunity to participate in an overseas program is an important part of the academic offering at State University of New York (SUNY) College at Old Westbury. Students may include in their degree programs, 2-3 week intensive courses, a summer, semester, or academic year of study in a foreign country. International study programs are sponsored by the various State University of New York or SUNY campuses.

SUNY College at Old Westbury students may apply for admission to more than 412 overseas study programs in 50 different countries: in North and South America, Africa, Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Courses are available in over 100 subjects, ranging from aboriginal studies and aerospace engineering to western philosophy and women's studies. While many programs focus on language learning and are conducted in the language of the host country, many others are conducted wholly or partly in English. Program structures vary from total immersion in a foreign university, to course instruction by foreign faculty, to courses taught by the SUNY faculty with expertise in a given subject area, to a combination of these structures.

SUNY College at Old Westbury also offers its own international study programs, including:

  • A student and faculty exchange program with Kangnung National University, South Korea
  • A student and faculty exchange program with four (4) different universities in China (Jinan University; Central University for the Nationalities; Shandong Finance Institute; and Wuyi University);
  • A student and faculty exchange with the State University of Management, Moscow
  • Summer programs in Spain and China

Various types of financial aid, for which a SUNY College at Old Westbury student is eligible, may be applied to the cost of foreign study. Program deadlines vary, but six months' lead time is usually required to investigate and apply for foreign study programs. Information may be obtained from the Office of International Education, Campus Center, Room I-210. Students must consult with their academic advisor before undertaking overseas study.
