Bradley University encourages its students to take advantage of study abroad programs approved by the University Curriculum and Regulations Committee. Students who wish to study abroad should begin early to investigate with their advisors the appropriate program for their needs. Study abroad is usually undertaken in the junior year. The office which handles the necessary registration and fees activity for study abroad is located in Caterpillar Global Communications Center, Room 325.
Study Abroad can broaden your horizons and deepen your cultural sophistication. It can foster maturity and self-confidence mixed with worldly experience. Study Abroad can be a turning point in your education. Education at its finest provides more than learning… it raises eager learners and academic risk takers to intellectual courage and wisdom. Study Abroad often is a catalyst for such excellence. Some of the Study Abroad programs Bradley features include the following: Bradley has affiliated with the Danish International Studies program in Copenhagen. By special arrangement, Bradley students are placed directly in some of the finest British universities. Each has a demanding curriculum and friendly environment. By way of a long-standing working relationship with the Council on International Educational exchange, Bradley students with the appropriate proficiency in foreign languages can study in France or Spain. Well-qualified Bradley students have the opportunity to study in Jerusalem at the Rothberg School for Overseas Students, Hebrew University. Existing and developing relations with fine universities in Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malta Mexico, Russia, South Korea, and Sweden provide Bradley students with additional excellent placement opportunities for Study Abroad.
In addition, since 1969 the University has operated a Summer Seminar Abroad.

A shorter version of this program is offered during the January Interim.
