The Office of Global Education can help you at every step of the study away process, from applying to programs and making preparations to go through the process of returning to Amherst and readjusting to your collegiate life. We’ve separated the process into four parts to make the process more manageable.
Applying to Programs
Be sure to learn as much as you can to make the best choice for your study away opportunity, and know that we can assist you with the early stages of the application process. Visit our Program List and Program Evaluations when considering what programs you’re interested in.

Preparing to Go
We can help guide you through the steps that you need to take before you leave. This includes keeping track of deadlines and forms you’ll need to fill out, learning how to finance the costs of your study away program, and understanding issues such as diversity and identity abroad.
Visit our Preparing to Go page to learn more.
While You’re Away
Studying away is an engaging and exciting time, but you’ll also need to carefully consider issues that may arise. We have information on health and emergency medical assistance insurance, medications, and negotiating health or wellness issues that require accommodations.

Returning to Amherst
The study away experience doesn't end simply because you've returned to campus. We have a number of resources to help you reintegrate to Amherst and incorporate your newly-developed skills into your daily life.
