As an institution that values intellectual curiosity and fearless learning, New College of Florida encourages its students to expand their education beyond the classroom and beyond borders by studying and interning away, in the United States and abroad.  Students have access to a wide variety of programs, from exchanging at other institutions within the United States via the National Student Exchange (NSE), EcoLeague, and the Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL), to studying around the world on faculty-led programs, exchange programs, and programs offered by select third-party providers.  The Off-Campus Study/Study Abroad office acts as the primary resource on campus for students seeking this invaluable experience.  The office supports the academic program and facilitates successful off-campus experiences by advising and assisting students who participate in study away programs through the entire process, from initial interest to reintegration on campus.
