Welcome to the Harper College Study Abroad webpage! We are very excited that you are considering an education abroad opportunity.
Studying abroad is an exciting way for the Harper College community to gain intercultural experience. For credit students, education abroad can help you develop skills and traits that will give you an advantage transferring from Harper College. International experience, cross-cultural communication skills, global awareness and foreign language skills are becoming increasingly important in all areas of work and study, and your study abroad experience will prepare you for future challenges that will require this knowledge and experience.
If you are interested in short-term or semester-long programs, we offer interesting and varied opportunities around the world. We have short-term programs offered by individual Harper faculty members as full-credit and Continuing Education classes throughout the year. We also offer a range of more long-term study abroad opportunities through the Illinois Consortium for International Studies and Programs (ICISP). In addition, we provide information about available programs, resources about funding opportunities, support through the application process, pre-departure orientation, advice and assistance while overseas, and post-return support.
