Rensselaer and the Lally School regard study abroad opportunities as vital to a well-rounded learning experience.
The undergraduate study abroad experience offered by Rensselaer is known as REACH (Rensselaer Education Across Cultural Horizons), which enables students to study overseas for a few weeks, a semester, or a year.
Our students learn about countries and cultures that are different from the U.S., make connections across borders, and return home with expanded horizons. Lally School students can study in a variety of countries such as Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore, and Spain.
Why study abroad?
A period of study abroad allows students to develop a broader perspective on their academic field of study while earning credit toward a Rensselaer degree. Students will gain a deeper understanding not only of the culture in which they will be living, but also the culture of the U.S. and its place in today’s global society.
Rensselaer provides international opportunities for undergraduates, including semester-long study abroad and exchange opportunities, short-term and faculty-led international programs, and other international experiences such as internships and service learning.
All students are encouraged and expected to take advantage of some sort of international experience during their four-year undergraduate education. Learn more about our partner universities here
