The University at Albany receives students for semester or year-long study under the auspices of exchange and study abroad agreements with many partners around the world.

**Note that some departments and schools at UAlbany have exchange agreements that are not managed by our office and they may not appear on this list. If you are sure that there is an agreement in place but your university is not listed you need to ask your university to communicate with us or the relevant department at UAlbany to clarify. If there is no agreement between your university and UAlbany you may still be able to study here as a fee paying “study abroad” student.
