From our campus to the world

Opportunities abound to step outside Wellesley and into other classrooms. See the world from a different vantage point, live in an unfamiliar culture, try a new way of learning—and grow into a better, stronger thinker. You can cross-register at nearby colleges, including MIT and Olin. Or spend a semester or full year away. Choose from hundreds of programs in the U.S. and abroad.

Study abroad

Our study abroad programs cross all academic disciplines. Whatever your area of study, you can immerse yourself in a foreign language, see a subject from a new perspective, conduct field research, or experience a culture that is radically different from your own. If you enroll in a fall, spring, or full-year credit-bearing study abroad program, you pay regular Wellesley tuition and remain eligible for Wellesley financial aid.
