Study Abroad with Equine Studies

International Studies

The International Studies program at Lake Erie College offers students two opportunities to expand their knowledge of the horse industry outside of the United States. Students may spend a semester abroad or they may participate in a short-term faculty-led study tour.

Students enroll in classes at institutions abroad for transferable academic credit. They have the opportunity to make industry contacts, experience another culture, participate in equine programs and courses not offered by Lake Erie and, in some instances, learn another language. Students often gain part-time employment in their host countries.

Lake Erie College takes an active role in matching students with international institutions that have equine programs. The process requires a solid understanding of our academic program and collaboration with other departments at Lake Erie College to transfer credits in other courses. Lake Erie College personnel together with the faculty and staff at the host institutions to place students in appropriate academic classes in their areas of interest.
