Education Abroad

Pace University values an international experience as integral to the student curriculum and Education Abroad supports this endeavor by offering numerous opportunities for study abroad in long, mid, and short-term programs.

For semester/year study abroad, students take a normal course load as defined and approved by their academic advisor while enrolled in an international institution for a semester or year.  Students pay Pace tuition and are eligible to retain part of their Pace scholarship dependent on the program.  Credits transfer back to Pace. 

Short-term programs include faculty-led programs taught by Pace faculty as well as a variety of courses offered by Pace Global Partners and study abroad providers.  These courses are typically offered during January or summer.  Pace Education Abroad also assists faculty members interested in organizing faculty-led courses. 

Education Abroad offers pre-departure orientations, re-entry orientations, as well as advising for all students studying abroad.
