At Hastings, you can study abroad for a semester, the summer or an entire academic year in places like Australia, Denmark, France, England, Peru, Russia, Thailand and more!

While Hastings has many academic opportunities that appeal to a number of interests and professional goals, there’s no substitute for the experiences you get studying or serving others while immersed in a different culture.

Types of Study Abroad Opportunities

Irish Fellows Program

The Hastings College Irish Fellowship program is a distinctive, competitive study abroad opportunity offered annually to full-time junior and senior Hastings College students. In partnership with Davy Spillane, a Grammy Award-winning Irish musician, Hastings College sponsors the program, which blends on-campus coursework with a month of independent study in County Clare, a region in the west of Ireland offering remarkable educational and cultural opportunities.

Other Study Abroad Experiences

We encourage you to develop your own interests and pursue them — including through Direct Enrollment. Direct Enrollment offers you the ability to leave Hastings College and come back after enrolling and completing a term at a school abroad.

How to Make it Happen

Meet with your advisor and/or the Academic Dean (see below), to develop a plan. You’ll also want to meet with the Registrar’s Office to make sure you’ll get credit for the classes you take.

Since processing times can vary, we encourage you to begin the process of applying for a passport as soon as possible to avoid any delays.
