  • Hungarian Students Return to UNH to Pursue PhDs

    Study abroad and international exchange programs are a vital part of college life.  They have the potential to function as a symbiotic relationship that is mutually beneficial for both the student and the university.  The student experiences another culture in depth, hones their language skills, and immerses fully in academics and student life at another institution.  For most, this is a profoundly enriching experience.  Read More
