Travel the world.   Experience cultures.   Be inspired.

We are excited to see where you go and the experiences you bring back to Pratt. Exchange programs consist of one semester of full-time study in a host country and are designed for students in their junior year of study. We encourage our students to explore their education internationally, and our office is happy to help you find the right opportunity. 

Where to begin?
If you don't know where to start based on your major, download the Available Exchange Programs and
 Available Semester Program to review the programs available to you. More informational documents can be found on the page Study Abroad 101.

Search for opportunities under "Program Search" by selecting a term, city, country, region, or institution, or conduct a search using the map visualizer. You can also create an advanced search of the available programs or choose to view all current programs and browse them in full.

Selecting a program will take you to its brochure page with information about the international school. From there, you can choose to apply to the program, request information, or print the program brochure. You must log in using your Pratt OneKey to apply or request information by selecting “I have a username and password” on the log in screen.

What kind of study abroad options are there? 

Exchange Program
Exchange typically refers to Pratt sending one student to an abroad institution who will in turn send one student to Pratt.

Semester Program
Semester programs are similar to exchange, with the only difference being that there is no requirement for a student from the host institution to come to Pratt.

Spring/Summer Program
Spring and Summer programs are typically short term and often (but not always) led by a member of Pratt’s faculty.

Third Party Program
Third Party Programs refer to those who are not offered by Pratt and instead arranged by another provider. These programs are only available during the summer.
