Becoming immersed in a different culture is a time-honored Hollins tradition. Half of our students — many times the national average — have an international experience before they graduate. Study abroad lets you gain firsthand, in-depth knowledge of another culture, see the world from a new perspective, and develop intercultural skills that will help you succeed in today's world.
In addition to the outstanding Hollins Abroad programs in Paris and London, to which students from all colleges and universities are invited to apply, Hollins offers our own students the opportunity to study on affiliated programs in countries around the world. Each has its own special academic focus and design.
We make study abroad as accessible as possible by offering programs for students of all majors, applying abroad credits to graduation requirements, and enabling students to apply all of their financial aid, including Hollins grants and scholarships, to any Hollins or affiliated program.
Visit the Hollins University Registrar's page to see if your external course has already been approved. If not, use the New Abroad Course Approval on their Academic Forms page to work on getting it approved. Please note you will need to discuss the course approval process with your academic advisor. Please feel free to contact the International Programs office with any questions.
