Semester & Year-Long Programs

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.

Students in any major can study abroad for a semester or a year. And at a BU Affiliated Program for Study Abroad, you can afford to finance your international academic experience. At an affiliated program, you will pay Bradley tuition. Your personal financial assistance package may apply. Check with the financial assistance office. Study abroad is possible, especially if you begin to plan early in your academic career.

What if you don’t speak a second language? Not an issue. You can consider programs in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland, Australia, and South Africa. But why limit yourself to considering English-speaking countries? We have affiliated programs taught in English in China, South Korea, Japan (Fall 2017), in Central and South America, and in more than 12 great European countries – in cities including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Prague, Rome, Athens, Madrid, Budapest, Stockholm, and more.

So start now! Begin by reading the FAQs at the tab on the left, and consult our extensive list of Affiliated Programs for Study Abroad. Surf, explore, inquire, and by all means bring your questions to the Study Abroad Office in 325 GCC. You can e-mail for an appointment or with questions! At the beginning of each semester, we'll also post walk-in hours. 

Why study abroad? Because Bradley students are citizens of the world.
