Study Abroad Opportunities

As a Lesley student you can sign up for a short-term travel course or spend an entire semester or full year at a university abroad. Engage in meaningful cultural exchange and language learning. Develop confidence and independence. And build self-knowledge and an appreciation for multiple perspectives. You'll return with a better understanding of the social, cultural, economic, political, and technological forces that shape today’s global society.

Where will your studies lead you?

Be immersed in different cultures. Visit historic and natural sites. Become a world citizen. That's the power of study abroad.

Services for International Students

Our community is small enough so that people can get to know one another. Yet it's big enough to provide rich opportunities. Here, you'll become part of an international community with a New England college-town personality. On campus, you'll participate in challenging research and study. In Cambridge and Boston, you'll immerse in local culture, history, and entertainment.

And you'll receive support at every stage of your international student experience. We'll guide you through the admissions process to become an undergraduate, graduate, or exchange student. We'll also help you apply for an F-1 Student Visa, and connect you to resources for academic success and personal development.

Fellowship Opportunities for Faculty

Global Fellowships provide Lesley University faculty with financial support for projects that advance success in supporting international students, study abroad, and curriculum internationalization. Past Global Fellows have spearheaded collaborations in Japan, China, and on campus in Cambridge. Applications periods are announced throughout the year and are open to core and adjunct faculty.

“It's hard work adjusting to a new culture and a new school, but at Lesley, you don't do it alone. Support from the International Student Office and the greater Lesley community makes your transition a smooth one. You will have the opportunity to build relationships and networks that stretch across nations."
