For Students

Cornell Global Hubs are your point of entry to a world of high-impact opportunities. Global Hubs let you experience the world and learn from it—while you make international connections and advance your academic and career goals.

World-Class Experiences

If you're an undergraduate, you'll find life-changing experiences at Hubs locations around the world, with classes that return to your Cornell degree, curricular pathways through majors, and hands-on field experiences. You’ll be embedded in life at a world-class university, where you’ll study with local students and international students like you.

Hubs offer a multitude of courses for every major taught in English, as well as language coursework. Internships and service-learning opportunities are available at several sites.

Graduate students will find career-enriching opportunities, including joining faculty research at Hubs locations, spending time at partner campuses, and making connections with fellow graduate students. There are also recruitment opportunities for new PhDs looking for employment at partner institutions. Start your Hubs engagement by exploring locations and reaching out to the faculty lead in your region of interest.

Connected to Cornell

A dynamic network of regional alumni will help you connect and support your time abroad. You may find exciting opportunities to join faculty research as Cornell researchers build and expand collaborations at Hub locations.

Hubs immerse you in a global extension of your Cornell community. Each Hub partners Cornellians with one or more universities, regional organizations, and local people. It’s the kind of sustained engagement that creates real relationships and real change.
