Study Abroad

The Center for Global Education (CGE) is excited to announce that effective Fall 2018 Simmons College will implement a Home School Tuition model for study abroad. This policy allows all Simmons grant and scholarship aid to be used for approved semester abroad programs and is reflective of the college’s commitment to accessibility and inclusion. Under this model, the financial process will largely mirror a semester on campus where participating students will continue to pay Simmons tuition, housing, as well as a study abroad fee. This policy simplifies the study abroad process and ensures that undergraduate students of all financial means and diverse backgrounds have an opportunity to pursue a transformative semester abroad while at Simmons.

Why Study Abroad?

"The study abroad office at Simmons helped me figure out which opportunities and paths of study I most want to pursue. I decided to study in Granada, Spain for a month. I would go again in a heartbeat."

"It's great that Simmons is expanding study abroad opportunities for students. I went to the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. The experience made me become a stronger person — both physically and mentally — and also more independent."

- Laura Biren '12

"Studying and living among people different than myself allowed me to become immersed in new languages and cultures that enriched to my study abroad experience and life as a whole. The benefits to studying abroad are endless, providing students with an amazing opportunity to step out of their comfort zones and see what the world has to offer. "
