Parsons offers study abroad opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduate students have three options for pursuing semester study abroad: study at Parsons Paris on
mobility, study through an exchange program, and study through a direct application program. Available options vary by major.
Specific policies and guidelines for studying abroad vary by major. Refer to the major-specific policy for your degree program before applying to study abroad.
All Parsons students who plan to study abroad must also meet the following criteria:
Study abroad applications are reviewed by the Parsons Global Initiatives office twice a year.
Students can apply through the GoAbroad link in their my.newschool.edu login.
Parsons has a growing list of
exchange partner institutions located around the world. These institutions represent diverse areas of learning and are among the best international art and design universities. One of the benefits of studying abroad through an exchange program is that it allows you to maintain the scholarships you would receive if you were studying here in New York.
While studying in an exchange program, students have the following responsibilities and resources at their home and host institutions:
Parsons students studying in an exchange program can apply for the
Parsons Annual Fund Undergraduate Scholarship. Funds cannot be used to pay for tuition or other fees directly to your host school but can be used to offset other costs associated with studying abroad.
Exchange Partner Institutions page for an up-to-date list of partnering schools and more information about these opportunities.
Direct application programs are programs and institutions with which Parsons does not have an exchange relationship. These programs still represent an exciting opportunity to study abroad.
While studying at a direct application program, students have the following responsibilities and resources at their home and host institutions:
Parsons students studying in direct application programs can apply for the
Parsons Undergraduate Scholarship. Funds cannot be used to pay for tuition or other fees directly to direct application programs but can be used to offset other costs associated with studying abroad.
Please be sure to read the refund policies of direct application institutions and programs, as they may differ from those of The New School.
Students seeking to permanently change their home campus should review the Campus Change policies. The deadline to apply for a campus change for the Fall 2017 semester is March 3, 2017. Applications can be found on the
Academic Advising policies page.
