Studying abroad requires a lot of planning, and The New School is here to help you meet your goals, needs, and expectations. To help you get started, be sure to meet with a Study Abroad Advisor as early as
possible. Students are encouraged to begin planning as early as their first semester at The New School and begin the application process at least a full semester prior to travel.
In addition to starting the application process, students should also begin reviewing travel requirements. The first step for any international trip is to get a passport. For more details on how to obtain or renew a passport, visit the Travel Preparation
How to Apply
Applying for study abroad is a multi-step process. To start, search for available study abroad programs in the GoAbroad portal, which students may log into directly under the ‘Academics’ section in MyNewSchool.
All students must submit the New School internal study abroad application in GoAbroad first to be considered for study abroad in your selected program(s). Students may apply to multiple programs and rank their program(s) by preference.
If your application to study abroad is approved, you can then apply to the program(s) of your choice. Once you have received your admission into the program, you must update your commitment to participate in your program on your study abroad application record in GoAbroad.
For more information about the application process, review the Study Abroad Application Guide and the study abroad policies and procedures.
Participation in international excursions through The New School does not require applying for study abroad, however, all students who are approved to participate in international excursions through The New School must register their travel with the Study
Abroad office and fulfill all excursion pre-departure requirements. For more information, see the International Excursions page.
Students must submit a New School Study Abroad Application as well as an external application for admission to the specific study abroad program they are interested in, and the application deadlines for each may differ. Contact your study abroad advisor
or email [email protected] with any questions regarding application deadlines and planning.
