Cornell Abroad offers a wide variety of academic programs abroad that are intellectually challenging, socially diverse, and culturally enriching. Students apply to a program and a back-up, if desired. In the case of direct enrollment in foreign universities, only one application is sent and the back-up is held in reserve until needed. Cornell students can study on programs run by Cornell or by other educational institutions or organizations. Given the range of options, early planning is important.
