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.

The Silverlinings Of A Winter In Scandanavia
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"I gained a greater perspective on the world, specifically the many comparisons and differences between Europe and America and how interesting the welfare state of Denmark is. It was absolutely worthwhile, and was an experience that will forever shape me."
Self Care Needs To Be A Priority.
Korea University: Seoul - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
"I learned a lot about myself and the importance of self-care and good mental health. Other than that, most of my time was spent on classes, homework, preparing for presentations/group work, doing presentations, worrying about classes and presentations, worrying about exams, failing exams and just school in general. "
Life Changing, Wonderful
CYA (College Year in Athens) - Semester/Academic Year Program
"It was worthwhile. I learned more about being independent, I learned about a new culture which in itself taught me so many things, like how to not be obsessed with productivity and how to appreciate the moment. My classes taught me about Greek and Byzantine art, business ethics and philosophy etc. I feel super enriched. "
Blending In With The Brits
IFSA: London - King's College London
"Definitely a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot - had to learn how to live on my own to a further extent than before, gained the ability to enjoy exploring places alone, learned to go more out of my comfort zone and take on more responsibilities."
