Earn Credit While Living in a Different Country
About study abroad
Studying abroad allows students to earn academic credit while experiencing the adventure and exhilaration of living in a new place. The International Education Study Abroad program at Normandale Community College is offered in collaboration with EGL (Education for Global Learning), partnership with University of Wisconsin, River Falls, and Normandale faculty led programs.

Additionally, you may find brochures and other printables as well as links to external resources using the Downloads & Links box at the top-right corner of every page.
Why Study Abroad?
We live in a very globalized world and having study abroad experience gives students an edge in the marketplace. Many companies are multinational and they are looking for individuals who have a worldview, who understand the sensitives regarding culture, heritage, tradition and religion.
Many four-year institutions are now requiring a study abroad experience, including Carlson School of Business. A study abroad experience at Normandale can be applied to most schools' requirement.
