Eugene Lang College, New School
Centered in New York City's Greenwich Village, The New School is the very definition of an urban university. At Eugene Lang College, known colloquially as Lang, the vibrant, cosmopolitan landscape of New York is the campus. The vast intellectual and cultural resources of this city are integrated into the curriculum at every level—in the classroom and out into the city itself through a wealth of partnerships, internships, and service-learning programs. At the heart of Eugene Lang College is a deep commitment to a liberal arts education that reaches across and beyond traditional areas of study.
Eugene Lang offers the advantages of a traditional small college but with access to the resources of a leading university. The New School enrolls more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students in more than 90 degree programs in the arts and sciences, management, design, and performing arts.
The exchange agreement between King's and Eugene Lang College - The New School allows for up to 5 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 5 students going for a full academic year OR 10 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two. However, King's will prioritise 2.5 semester places (of the total 5 full year places) for Liberal Arts students.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
