The Global Engagement Office now offers Plymouth State University students the choice of three new exchange opportunities in Europe. Through each of these new partnerships, students pay tuition to PSU and room and board at the host university. This arrangement makes these opportunities very cost effective for our students and allows us to keep tuition dollars at PSU.
The new exchange agreements are with schools in Sweden, Germany, and Spain.
In Sweden students will study at Dalarna University and take a wide variety of courses. The exchange collaboration in Spain is with Universidad de Carlos III in Madrid and gives students not only a wide variety of courses to choose from in many majors, but an opportunity to live and study right outside of Madrid. This university is accessible by train and offers an optional language course. In Germany, students may now study at Dortmund University of Applied Arts and Sciences.This agreement is currently with the
Dortmund business department. Thus, we encourage students in the College of Business Administration to consider this new exchange opportunity.
The application deadline for the fall semester 2014 for these exchange programs is April 15, 2014. If students would like to study abroad in the spring semester 2015, encourage them to submit applications by October 15, 2014.
We are excited about these new exchange collaborations and are
happy to be able to offer more affordable choices for students who would like to study abroad. Please contact Jess Pine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about international exchange programs.
