Study Abroad

University of St. Andrews

"Only being there for a semester, I was prepared to do things I would have been too afraid of doing at Columbia."

Julia Zeh CC'18

Getting Started

Study abroad expands the walls of the institution and offers you the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the larger global community. Students engaged in study abroad discover insights into other cultures, develop new perspectives, and reflect on how their own culture has shaped their understanding of the world.
