Fall Midyear Programs

There are many opportunities available for midyear students to take part in during their fall semester before arriving at Brandeis.

For the adventurous, Brandeis works with fall off-campus study programs that are tailored specifically to meet your academic and social interests. A fall semester in Europe is a wonderful time to explore different places and cultures.

Please review the Midyear Fall Programs FAQs and if you have any further questions contact a member of the Office of Study Abroad staff.
