Off-Campus Study / Study Abroad

Hanover offers you the opportunity to travel to seven different countries worldwide including Australia, Turkey and Spain. You can study at a foreign university which offers programs approved for credit that can be applied toward your Hanover course requirements. Because there are no additional costs for tuition, you can take advantage of these life-changing study abroad programs every year. You can select from any one of the semester-long college study abroad programs at universities in these countries:

Each of the approved universities in these countries has an established relationship with Hanover College which enables the grades and course credits to transfer. However, with the right level of interest and dedication, you can work with the college's Study Abroad department to investigate and arrange a self-designed program through a different university of your choice.

If you are interested in any of these programs, you can begin the application process through the Hanover College Study Abroad department. The staff there will advise you on which universities offer the appropriate classes for fulfilling any outstanding credit requirements. They will also work with you to ensure that the necessary arrangements for traveling out of the country are properly completed.
