Whether you want to study abroad for a block or a year, you're a language novice or a pro, Cornell offers a program that will allow you to get off-campus while fulfilling your academic and personal goals.

There are three ways to study off-campus at Cornell:

1. Take one of Cornell's block-long off-campus courses.

2. Study through a Cornell affiliate institution for as little as a block or as long as a year.

3. Choose an unaffiliated program to match your needs.
