International Programs at Mercer University


Experienced Program Providers on Six Continents


  • Mercer Abroad has partnered with a preferred set of universities, study abroad program providers, and consortia to expand its offerings throughout the world.
  • Each program partner has years of experience in student learning, safety, and cultural programming.
  • Mercer students can enroll in any of these programs as transient students for a semester, academic year, or summer term.
  • Explore the world, earn credit, and discover yourself!


How do you study abroad with a Mercer partner program?

  • You must work the Office of Study Abroad in advance of their international experience or risk not receiving transient credit toward their degree requirements on the Macon campus. Pre-approved academic credit may be transferred back to the Macon campus.
  • Students pay all tuition and program fees to the ‘third party’ program or university.
  • Mercer scholarships are not transferable to these programs but state, federal, and other forms of non-Mercer private aid may be applicable. See the Office of Student and Financial Planning to determine your eligibility.
