International Student Exchange


Lara Mowforth, 2013 exchange student from Robert Gordon University
Studying in the United States for a semester or year can be a life-changing experience. Columbia College offers the opportunity for students attending our partner institutions to study at the Columbia College main campus located in the center of the United States in Columbia, Missouri.

Exchange students are an important part of the campus community. Exchange students engage in English or academic classes, participate in cross-cultural events and experience American college life.

Columbia College currently maintains active exchange agreements with Canterbury Christ Church University (England), Jeju National University (South Korea), Kongju National University (South Korea), Konkuk University (South Korea), Rangsit University (Thailand), Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen Business School (Scotland) and the University of Shiga Prefecture (Japan).

If you are interested in studying as an exchange student at Columbia College, please notify the study abroad office at your home institution.
