Stony Brook University is a SUNY school (State University of New York). Stony Brook realizes the importance and necessity of an international academic experience to benefit students wishing to remain in a competitive pool of applicants for employment or graduate studies. The Office of International Academic Programs, or IAP, helps students find exciting opportunities that will enhance their academic experience. Students first begin with deciding whether they will attend a study abroad/short term program, or an international exchange/long term program. The former typically involves a faculty led experience, with all courses in English, and are held over the summer or winter sessions. The latter consists of a direct enrollment program into a partner institution, and generally lasts for a semester or academic year. Interested?
