Welcome to the Hollins Abroad Application site!
This website facilitates the advising and application process for Hollins student
s who want to study abroad on any of our program offerings, as well as external candidates
(of any gender) who wish to study abroad on our London semester or London Summer Internship programs. The website is hosted by Terra Dotta (aka Studio Abroad), which is why you may hear it referenced as such.
Hollins University currently runs its own program in London (including the London Summer Internship program)
, and any student
may apply to attend for a semester. To explore those programs, please click on the link for each of those programs, which appears in the column to the left.
For more information about our London
program, we encourage prospective applicants to review the presentation from our most recent Hollins Abroad - London Information Session
Please Note: Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Hollins will be suspending the London Summer Internship program for Summer 2020. We are happy to share any details regarding future plans to those of you who may still be interested in the program in 2021 or beyond.
Hollins University students may also apply to a number of affiliated and faculty-led programs*
. Links to the brochure pages for each of those programs can be found by clicking on “List of Programs (for Hollins Students)” in the column to the left. (*Not all faculty-led trips will appear on this site.

Each program has a “Brochure Page”
which will contain all the details regarding the program you are considering. When you click “Apply Now”
from the Brochure page for each program, you will first be directed to create an account and enter some basic information. Be sure to designate which school you are from. You will then be able to apply for the program you want to attend (if we are currently accepting applications). For complete directions on the application process

Did you know that studying abroad can place you ahead of the pack as a job candidate? According to a recent study from the Institute of International Education (IIE) entitled “Gaining an Employment Edge: The Impact of Study Abroad on 21st Century Skills & Career Prospects in the United States,” study abroad provides a unique opportunity for students to gain work-related skills in a global context. It contributes to the development of a wide range of transferable job skills, expands career opportunities, and makes candidates more attractive to potential employers. Students make gains in important areas such as intercultural competency, communication, problem-solving, language, resiliency, flexibility, and major-related knowledge. Employers increasingly want to see international experience on potential employees’ resumes, as it demonstrates qualities important in today’s workplace. Within the context of today’s global economy, most students will move into jobs where they work for or do business with international companies, as well as work with diverse colleagues. Accordingly, the work-related skills gained through study abroad can be powerful tools for career success. More than half of the survey respondents across all majors and industries believed that their study abroad experience contributed to a job offer and/or promotion at various points in their career. So what are you waiting for? Start your study abroad adventure now to prepare yourself for amazing career opportunities down the road!
