Barnard has a rich history and tradition of study abroad dating back to the 1930s. Today, students study abroad in more than 35 countries, from Australia to Tibet. This site details the opportunities available, online resources, and procedures to apply. Please review the information on the website before meeting with the Dean for Study Abroad.
One of the best ways to learn more about what study abroad can offer you academically and personally is from other Barnard students who have studied abroad or who are currently abroad. We invite you to link to reach out to Barnard students who have studied abroad to ask questions about their experience and research which program is right for you.

University College London (UCL): London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
"The assessments were more intense, so I learned more about managing my time to balance out my work and "play" schedule.

New York University: Madrid - NYU in Madrid

The Highest Highs & The Lowest Lows!
Study Abroad Programs in India
"I think that if you go into the situation with no expectations, and are ready to embrace whatever is about to come your way, then your experience will be incredible.

Not My City
CIEE: Barcelona - Advanced Liberal Arts
"Absolutely worthwhile. I learned so much about myself just spending that much time alone and by being forced to use a second language to communicate and travel solo. I really dislike the city, the culture and the people there, but it was so valuable regardless. "
