Each year several hundred Wellesley College students spend a semester or year abroad, pursuing academic and personal interests in every world region.

The College sponsors a variety of programs in Europe, Asia and North America, appropriate for students across the disciplines. In addition, Wellesley College students have the opportunity to study in one of many excellent international colleges and universities.
