2+1 Opportunities

International 2+1 Bachelor's Programs

American students often attend a community college and a university to complete their bachelor’s degree. In addition to Lane’s many partnerships for students to study at Lane and then at an American university, Lane is excited to create global pathways for students to complete their bachelor’s degree in countries around the world! The pathway for our global bachelor’s degree opportunities is quite similar, students will complete a specified associate degree at Lane and then, rather than transferring within the United States, students will complete their degree in another country.


  • A truly international degree! You will study in more than one country and gain a diverse set of perspectives.
  • Complete your bachelor's degree much faster!
    • The European Union and many other countries converted many of their bachelor's degrees into three year programs through the Bologna process. This means you could have a bachelor's degree in just one year after you graduate from Lane.
  • All of your classes will be in English, but you will have the opportunity to experience other cultures and if you want, learn other languages!
  • Affordability
    • Community college tuition is usually half or a third the cost of a typical American university.
    • Finishing in three years means you can begin your career earlier.
    • Tuition costs vary greatly and may be lower at some international universities than at American universities.
