STUDY AT A UNIVERSITY OR PROGRAM IN ANOTHER COUNTRY
As a student at Dowling College you can take a holiday (Winter or Summer), one semester, or as much as a year to study in another country. Most of the time, the program you take can give you credit toward your degree — and if you are eligible for financial aid, your grant or loan may be used to help pay the costs.
WHERE CAN I GO?
Dowling College offers you access to more than one hundred locations and programs for studying in other countries. Some of these are Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in Auckland, New Zealand; Kyonggi University in Seoul, Korea; Osaka University in Osaka, Japan; Malmo University in Malmo, Sweden; Univ. of Lima in Lima, Peru; HZ University in Vlissingen, The Netherlands; and more than 100 other programs in Europe, Asia, and every continent except Antarctica!! Some are offered by Universities with whom Dowling College has an “Exchange agreement” and some are offered by specialized Study Abroad Provider organizations.
