UNH Exchange Programs

UNH partners with select universities abroad to provide a unique educational opportunity to students of both campuses. Students from UNH enjoy the opportunity to study abroad while paying UNH tuition & maintaining their UNH financial aid. Their foreign counterparts provide the UNH community an opportunity to expand our global knowledge and enrich the UNH classroom environment with their diverse perspectives. 

Attend a Study Abroad Information Session.  Applications are available from Catherine D'Auteuil, the Coordinator of Student Programs.

flag of Brazil  Brazil, Ribeirão Preto - Semester or year

Focused studies in all aspects of music with immersion in Portuguese language and Brazilian culture. This exchange with University of São Paulo Ribeirão Preto grew out of collaborations between UNH’s and USP-RP’s Departments of Music, with lots of small group interaction with professors and Brazilian students, and participation in extra-curricular activities, including Filarmônica, Jazz Band, Grupuri (percussion group), and several choirs. 

"Studying at USP gave me the freedom to reinvent and redefine myself as a university student. The students in the music department are diligent yet social, and I never felt lonely for lack of a friend. During my stay at USP I fell in love with Brazil itself, and I now more fully understand the importance of engaging with diverse cultures, opinions, and experiences."
