Study Abroad Programs

Brandeis prides itself on being a globally connected university.

The best way to take advantage of this is to study abroad. Each year, 40 percent of juniors leave campus to explore new corners of the world. Students can go abroad for a semester or a full academic year, or during the summer. With almost 300 study abroad programs in 64 countries, the hardest part is choosing where to go!

Brandeis-Led Study Abroad Programs

In addition to these 300 programs, students can study abroad with Brandeis faculty, focusing on topics such as international law and justice through the Brandeis in The Hague program; European economics through Brandeis in Copenhagen; studio art and art history through Brandeis in Siena; or high-level sciences through the Brandeis-India Science Scholars Program. Each program offers tailored learning opportunities that include access to experts, site visits and experiential learning.

Midyear Off-Campus Programs

Each year Brandeis admits a number of students to the midyear class, which commences in January and allows students to take a semester off before beginning their college studies. Since 2010, midyear students have had the chance to participate in study abroad programs for the fall semester. Sites include Florence, Italy; London; and Washington, D.C. Learn more about the fall midyear programs at Brandeis. Please note financial aid and scholarships are not available from Brandeis for the Midyear Fall programs.

Financial Aid

Ninety-five percent of Brandeis financial aid is portable for study abroad. Additional scholarships are also available for study abroad programs. While abroad, students maintain their status as currently enrolled Brandeis undergraduates.
