Exchange Programs


Overview

  • PSU has exchanges with sister universities around the world that allow PSU students to pay PSU tuition while studying abroad
  • Exchanges are great options for students looking for semester or year-long programs
  • You can take classes in English or in the host country language
  • You will be attending as a visiting student and be enrolled in class with local students

Affordability

  • Students on exchange pay PSU tuition and can use financial aid
  • Full-time, degree-seeking PSU students pay PSU tuition for the courses attended abroad and pay room and board to the host institution
  • Other costs may include passport costs, visa costs, airfare & in-country transportation, international medical insurance, health consult, & personal expenses

Language

Students who apply for non-English speaking exchange universities and plan to take classes in the language of the host country must have a recommendation from the Modern Languages and Literature department. If the language of the host institution is not taught at PSU, contact the Study Abroad Coordinator.

Many of the universities have course offerings in English, but these courses may be limited and may change from semester to semester.

Popular Options

Our most popular exchange schools include Finland, France, Malta, South Korea, and Spain. Students studying international business, management, and marketing often choose to study in Finland, France, or South Korea. Spanish and French majors/minors choose to go to France and Spain. Universities in Finland, Malta, and South Korea also offer many courses compatible with PSU's general education requirements.

Don't hesitate to ask the Study Abroad Coordinator about which program would best fit your studies at PSU. Students who have already studied at our exchange schools are also great contacts in order to understand what the courses are like abroad.
