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.

Copenhagen, Living In A Fairytale
DIS Copenhagen: Semester
"I learned about the Danish government system and all about their plans to become carbon neutral. It made me want to implement changes into my life in terms of my environmental awareness and it made me realize the changes that could be implemented in our society in the US that would make life better"
It Was Tough, But Worth It
"The most gain I had was in my Chinese language ability. My goal was to be able to express any idea/thought I had in Chinese, which I definitely could not do prior to this program. By the end, this was possible. It may not have always been the best way to say it, but I figured it out. "
"I think the biggest gain from my experience abroad is independence. I grew to care less about what people thought of me, in other words gained confidence. Now I think I can work and live in almost any country and have the confidence to adapt and build meaningful relationships while there. "
