How do I Study Abroad?

Menlo College offers its students access to educational programs in over 20 countries around the world. You will work closely with the International Office to find the best program option for you.

Your options fall into a few main categories…

Menlo College currently has 3 exchange partner institutions where students can study for the fall and/or spring semester:

Study abroad providers take Menlo students to 6 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 intervention strategies in mental health, and take the opportunity to get to know Argentinian kids through volunteer tutoring.
  2. Spend a semester in Florence at CEA’s Marketing and Sustainable program studying the business of food, fashion marketing and merchandising, family business and entrepreneurship, and more. Live in housing arranged by CEA and take advantage of the opportunity to travel to other parts of Italy such as Rome, Siena, and the Amalfi Coast.
  3. Squeeze in an amazing ten-day excursion with GAV to Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; Singapore or Hong Kong to learn about business during your winter break.
