About OIE

Welcome to the Office of International Education (OIE) at Champlain College!

Here at Champlain, international and comparative perspective is woven into the Core curriculum and includes opportunities for study abroad for a semester or as part of a course taught on the Burlington campus. Most majors also encourage students to study abroad as part of their program and many students have opportunities for international internships and service learning.

Champlain College has study abroad campuses in Montreal and Dublin, and provides opportunities for students to study abroad at additional sites through approved third party providers, and our exchange partners. Studying abroad is an expectation and within the next few years 50% or more of our students will have studied abroad by the time they graduate.

Champlain invites international students to enroll for their four years at college. Find all the resources you will need to study in the United States, and at Champlain College. The College also has an exchange program with schools in Morocco, France, and the Netherlands, where Burlington students spend a semester immersed in another culture, and students from these international campuses get to join our campus. 

At Champlain College, global awareness and global perspective involves living and learning in a diverse and tolerant environment that encourages open discussion and exposes students to different worldviews. In this spirit Champlain College attracts, welcomes and supports students from many countries and diverse cultures.

Please explore and let us know if we can help you.

"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.

Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.

Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.

A World of Options:

    • Champlain College's Dublin Campus attracts students from diverse majors and is the ideal starting point for further exploration of Ireland, Europe and points beyond.

    • Montreal, home to another Champlain Campus, is ranked as one of the world's "hippest" cities by the New York Times. Our program is known for cutting-edge academics and internship placements in a city famous for its innovative economy.

    • In addition to our own Champlain Abroad program, students have the following choices available to them:

      • Third-Party Study Abroad: Champlain's Office of International Education will help you through the steps to study in the location you want.
      • International Internships: Some of the approved study-abroad programs offer internship opportunities. If you wish to arrange a "stand alone" international internship (without taking courses at that institution), please contact your Dean about this process. 
      • Exchange Program:  Champlain has a partnership with five international schools. While Burlington students immerse themselves in either New Zealand, Scotland, France, the Netherlands or Morocco, we will welcome students from our exchange partners for a semester or full academic year.
      • Faculty-Led Courses: Champlain also offers faculty-led courses. These courses change year to year, and faculty member will promote these particular offerings on campus. Many entail a semester course that spends a break or a couple weeks in the summer abroad. For more information, contact the Office of International Education.
