National Student Exchange (NSE) is a premier network of 160 colleges and universities offering collegiate study away to 2,000 students annually throughout the United States, Canada, and U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. NSE campuses range in enrollment from 600 to more than 50,000 students. Review your options at NSE.org.
Please note that you must apply first through this website for Gustavus approval to participate. Only after Gustavus approval is determined will you complete the NSE application.
- Spend a semester studying and living in Canada, our neighbor to the north! This is a great way to experience a study away exchange in another country while staying relatively close to home and saving on travel costs.
- Try out a particular field of study or a specialization within your major field that is not regularly a part of the curriculum at Gustavus. (Note: This can be helpful for students considering graduate school.)
- Try living in a different kind of environment (e.g., an urban area or a coastal city) to explore options that may help you make future decisions when looking for a job or a graduate program.
- Experience different perspectives among people in your main fields of interest by experiencing the courses offered by three or four or five professors from another institution.
- For students with advanced proficiency in French, take advantage of the opportunity to study in a French-immersion context without traveling to Europe or Africa.

Note that Gustavus requires junior class standing by the start of your NSE exchange semester. First-year students and sophomores are not eligible to participate.
Note that this is an exchange program. In the exchange model, participating Gustavus students enroll directly in courses offered by a partner college or university located abroad or elsewhere in the US. In these programs, there is less direct support for participating students when compared to programs run by Gustavus or by partner organizations with US staff members and offices. The model requires some extra effort on the student's part, to navigate an unfamiliar institution and its systems, but the rewards are demonstrably greater (research shows this), as students who complete such programs experience the most immersive form of study away.
