Study abroad is an integral component of a student’s Harvard College experience. Through academic year and/or summer study abroad, students may earn credit toward their concentration, secondary field, and language citation, while directly enrolling in foreign universities alongside local and other international students, with other US-based students on third-party programs, or in fixed or traveling field-based programs.
Term Time Study Abroad
