Semester & Year-Long Programs
We’ve added new programs to the list of Affiliated Programs for Study Abroad. At an affiliated program, you’ll pay Bradley tuition, and your BU financial aid package will apply just as it does for on-campus study. Our new programs include the following:
Want to study abroad but don’t have a strong second language? There are excellent English-language programs available in surprising places such as South America – check out our new affiliated program in Argentina’s greatest city, Buenos Aires.
In Europe, where a strong English-language affiliated program in Copenhagen already welcomes majors from nearly all disciplines, we have added excellent programs in Amsterdam and Prague. Students without prior foreign language training can also study in Rome, Florence, and Budapest.
And don’t forget our excellent affiliated programs in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Australia! See more on our page listing Affiliated Programs for Study Abroad.
WHY STUDY ABROAD?
As members of an academic community, we have both the privilege and responsibility to broaden our perspectives by experiencing cultural, social, and intellectual environments other than our own. No single activity facilitates this process more ably than extended international study. Understanding international perspectives and encountering cultural differences is a critical element of an undergraduate education that prepares students for an increasingly interrelated world.
Study Abroad is most often undertaken in a student’s junior year, though by no means always; there are many options. Start early in your academic career to investigate the best semester-long or year-long program for your needs.
To begin, consider BU “Affiliated Programs,” or programs with which Bradley has already established a formal affiliation. Why begin with these? Because Bradley students attending these programs are generally able to use part or all of their BU financial assistance package.
Before you begin the application process for any program, come to the International Programs Office, 325 GCC. A minimum 2.5 GPA is required to study abroad.
