Rensselaer and the Lally School regard study abroad opportunities as vital to a well-rounded learning experience.
Through Rensselaer-affiliated exchanges, students pay regular Rensselaer tuition, and financial aid applies. An affiliated exchange can be ideal insofar as Rensselaer students take courses that will likely transfer back to campus as Rensselaer courses, not simply electives. For example, if you take EBC 2003-Management Information Systems at Universiteit Maastricht in the Netherlands, it transfers back to Rensselaer as MGMT 4140-Computer Information Systems. Please note that among other considerations, eligibility begins with a 3.0 minimum GPA (3.3 for UCL and DTU) and second-semester sophomore status; some programs require junior standing.
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.
