International education is a high priority of Paul College with many Education Abroad opportunities available. Through semester long and short term program options, students have the ability to immerse themselves in different cultural environments to better prepare for a career in a globalized business industry. Students in Paul College have studied abroad in a variety of countries including but not limited to Australia, China, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Portugal and Spain.
Beyond the hundreds of programs offered by the Center for International Education and Global Engagement, students in Paul College have the option of participating in faculty led programs to destinations such as Ascoli Picenso, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; the Caribbean; Dominican Republic; and Dijon, France. Students are encouraged to begin planning their study abroad experience early on in their academic career. In most cases, students are able to take a semester abroad without losing any time towards graduation.
In addition to Education Abroad, there are many other options students can elect to participate in to gain an international perspective. Through internships abroad, research grant programs, and volunteering, students can gain practical hands on experience while expanding their network and perspective.

Congrats on taking the first step towards an unforgettable life changing experience! Studying abroad can be an intimidating process but Paul College and the Center for International Education & Global Engagement work very closely together to help students achieve their dreams.
You might be asking yourself:
- Will this delay my graduation?
- How do I know what country will be the right fit for me?
- How will my credits transfer and will I take courses for my major abroad?
- Is it better to study abroad in fall or spring semesters?
While each student situation is unique, Paul College Undergraduate Advisors work extremely hard to make sure you remain on track by taking courses that work towards UNH graduation requirements. It is very unlikely you will delay graduation by studying abroad for a semester or in some cases a year!

All international coursework must be approved in advance.
Subject to approval of each individual course, students may transfer from abroad:
- 50% of the coursework for the option
- 30% of the coursework for the major core courses
*In total, Paul College students may transfer no more than 50% of their major coursework from domestic and study abroad programs combined.
- A grade of “C” or better is required to transfer credit.
- A course taken at another institution may not be used under the University repeated course rule.
- If credit was received for a UNH course equivalent to the course taken at another institution, no transfer credit will be allowed.
Senior Residency Requirement: UNH residence policy states that students must attain the last one-fourth of their credits (generally 32 credits) toward the degree in residence at UNH as a matriculated student. Students seeking to transfer credits that fall into this range must petition to the Academic Standards and Advising Committee through their Dean’s Office, unless they are taking these credits on an approved study abroad or study away program through UNH.
