International Exchange Programs

Our exchanges are some of the best ways to cultivate intercultural perspective or to learn a new language, all while continuing to study what you love.

Building at Universidad Autonoma de San Luis Potosi

Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí, Mexico

One of Latin America’s best universities, the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí is the perfect destination for Marlboro students who want a Spanish language immersion experience. Although the history of higher education in San Luis Potosí traces back to the Jesuit College founded in 1623, the modern version of UASLP was born in the 1850s as the Scientific and Literary Institute, founded by the government to free higher education from religious or other ideological influences.

BISLA, Slovakia

Study as an exchange student in Bratislava. The capital city of Slovakia is located beside the borders of Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, making travel to Vienna, Budapest, and Prague easily accessible. Marlboro’s partnership with Bratislava International School of Liberal Arts, or BISLA, allows Marlboro students to study at BISLA while BISLA students study at Marlboro in an exchange.

Charles University, Czech Republic

For a student seeking a larger university experience in one of Europe’s most historic and beautiful destinations, Marlboro’s partnership with Charles University in Prague is a great program to consider. With close to 50,000 students, a semester or year-long stay at Charles University presents a unique opportunity for students who long for a change of pace from Marlboro, in terms of social and academic culture.

Angular building at Leuphana University

Leuphana University, Germany

Marlboro’s partnership with Leuphana University, a medium-sized campus of just under 8,000, offers a unique undergraduate exchange experience in Lüneburg, Germany. With 30 different degree programs ranging within the fields of sciences, technology, and business, Leuphana’s curriculum differs greatly from Marlboro’s liberal arts emphasis. Such a curriculum would be particularly helpful to students wishing to explore discipline areas for which Marlboro does not formally provide faculty support.

American University of Nigeria

American University of Nigeria

Our most recent partnership, the American University of Nigeria is located in Yola, the capital of the Nigerian state of Adamawa. Located in the North-East of the country, Adamawa state shares a border with nearby Cameroon, and is an access point to a number of national parks and UNESCO World Heritage sites. The university was founded in 2003 with the mission to provide quality education to Nigeria and Africa’s future leaders, pioneering service learning and sustainable development in Sub Saharan Africa.

Heilongjiang University, China

For Marlboro students who are Mandarin language learners, our partnership with Heilongjiang University in the “New England” of China is a wonderful program. Students can study for one or two months in an intensive language environment during summer breaks.
