The Office of Study Abroad supports Brandeis students who participate on any of our 300 approved programs in some 65 different countries around the world.
On average 40% of the junior class studied abroad during the academic year while still more students took advantage of various international opportunities in the summer. There is a huge diversity of transformative experiences that Brandeis students have engaged in abroad including studying biodiversity conservation hands on in Panama, conducting ethnographic research on sacred figures in Mongolia, interning with Parliament in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, and interning in special education classrooms in Sydney, Australia to name a few.
Whatever your story, journey or adventure is destined to be, come by our office to learn more about the steps to going away!
Additionally, by logging in to Abroad101, all approved programs will be tagged with an "Approved" badge.

Fun! But Definitely Culture Shock.
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"It was! I learned that people really do operate differently in different cultures. In Denmark, emotions are something very personal. It’s weird to say how are you to someone, even a friend. "
Study Abroad In Seoul!!
CIEE: Seoul - Arts and Sciences
"I learned so much about Korean culture, how America is viewed by the rest of the world, and confidence in myself and my ability to adapt to an entirely different living situation."
I Loved This Program!
IFSA: Sydney - University of Sydney
"It was absolutely worthwhile- I had never been to Australia before, and I was able to check so much off my bucket list. Though travel is much harder to do than in Europe, it is so worth being in this part of the world and seeing so many stunning places!"
3 Months I Will Never Forget!
SIT Study Abroad: Peru - Indigenous Peoples and Globalization
"I learned so much about cultures I really had no prior knowledge about. Being able to visit and interact with different indigenous communities was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I am so grateful to have had. I also do not believe I would have been able to achieve the level of Spanish I am at now without my time in Peru."
Great Opportunities Abroad With A Professionally Run Program
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"A lot. I personally got a lot of relevant experience in things I cared about which was great. I was also forcibly put in alien social situations, which was a good push for me personally, and I think it helped me grow a lot as a consequence. For me, it was definitely worth my time and worth spending a semester."
