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.

An Unforgettable Experience
CIEE: Cape Town - Arts and Sciences
"A real sense of worldly perspective. The protests did make me think about the education systems of South Africa and the US, as well as how systemic racism differs between the two countries. The concepts were complex and interesting, and the conversations I had were incredibly worthwhile. "
Prague: Forever In My Heart
CIEE: Prague - Central European Studies
"I gained better cultural understanding, having to go through some cultural barriers. I learned how to be more independent, whether in Prague or as I travelled around Europe. I could not imagine a better study abroad experience, and hope to get back to Prague ASAP"
My Second Home
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"I learned to listen and learn about other cultures. Not to take things too personally because you are the one entering a new space."
Friendships That Will Last A Lifetime!
"The biggest thing I gained was so many friends that I am really close to. I also hugely improved my Japanese skills. This experience has opened my mind to the world (met so many people from all over the world while I was in Japan) and also made me decide to live in Japan in the future."
Eye Opening Experience
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"The experience definitely opened my eyes to a new culture outside of the US. It was interesting to learn about and see the values that make up Danish society, which are so different from the US. It was also interesting to hear the Danish perspectives on societal and political issues. The experience was definitely worthwhile. "
