Exchange Programs

Your destination for cultural immersion and language acquisition! Global study for independent students who prefer a personalized program.

“I don't think there is a study abroad option that suits me.” 

For those of you interested in mastering a second language or immersing yourself in a new academic culture, a semester-long exchange program is for you! St. John’s University has developed institutional partnerships with universities around the world, allowing you to enroll directly at the host institution while earning transfer credits for your major. Explore your major from a different cultural lens while staying on track toward graduation and gaining a global edge in your profession. 

“Studying abroad is way too expensive, and I don't think I can afford it.” 

You will continue to pay St. John's University tuition, allowing you to utilize your financial aid package. Keep in mind, though, that the cost of living will vary based on location and the type of accommodation you choose abroad (apartment, homestay, dormitory).

Visa application fees vary.

“I don't speak a second language.” 

Most of our exchange destinations offer coursework in English.
