Study Abroad Programs

The Office of Study Abroad supports Brandeis students who wish to participate in any of the 350 approved programs in some 70 countries around the world. Almost half of the junior class studies abroad during the academic year, while other students take advantage of international opportunities in the summer or during a university vacation. Students from all majors and minors can earn credit from an overseas experience.

Brandeis-Led Study Programs

Building on strong connections in India, Israel, Italy and The Netherlands, Brandeis University has developed these unique academic programs for undergraduate students. The programs embody the distinctive elements of a Brandeis education including the intense intellectual engagement students share with our cutting-edge faculty; rich experiential learning opportunities; and the University's longstanding commitment to global engagement and social justice.

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.
