How do I Study Abroad?

Menlo College offers its students access to programs in over 70 cities across 26 countries! You will work closely with Kelly, Assistant Director of Career Services and Study Abroad, to find the best program option for you.

Your options fall into a few main categories…

Study abroad providers take Menlo students to 5 of the 7 continents (no one has figured out how to study abroad in Antarctica yet…) Here are examples of each of the 3 providers:

  1. Travel with IFSA to Buenos Aires, Argentina for a summer to live with a host family, study social and multicultural Psychology, and take the opportunity to get to know Argentinian kids through volunteer tutoring.
  2. Spend a semester in Rome in CEA’s Business and Communication program, where you can live in an apartment or homestay and travel to other parts of Italy (Pompeii and Florence included) through the program’s weekend excursions.
  3. Squeeze in an amazing ten-day excursion with GAV to Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; or Hong Kong to learn about business right after the fall semester ends.
