For Students

There is growing recognition on university campuses across the world that international experience is crucial in every aspect of higher education.

At Cornell University, international study is a core component of your education: a global perspective helps you foster understanding, expand your curiosity and tolerance, and learn through active and reflective engagement.

Global Cornell contributes to the educational mission of the university by supporting your activities to be a global citizen, to add international dimensions into your academic program. We help colleges, schools, and units provide you with opportunities for language study, for understanding history and cultures, and for meaningful international engagement.

Through Global Cornell, we are preparing students in your generation—undergraduate students, graduate and professional students, domestic and international students—to live and work in a world that transcends national boundaries.
