Make the world your classroom.

Engage in cultural exchange. Enhance your language skills. Visit historic and natural sites. And build your knowledge of and appreciation for multiple perspectives. This is the power of international education.

Through our Global Education Center, you can launch your plans to study abroad at a school outside of the US or come to Lesley University in bustling Cambridge, Massachusetts as an international student. Whether you're coming here to learn or planning to explore the world beyond our campus, we’ll support you along the way.

As a Lesley undergraduate or graduate student, you can take a short-term travel-study course or spend a semester or year studying at a school outside of the United States. Return with a deeper understanding of the social, cultural, economic, political, and technological forces that shape today’s interdependent world.

Our Study Abroad Office will help you find a program that aligns with your interests and academic requirements.
