Juniors Studying Abroad

Boston College has a vibrant study abroad program and approximately 25-30% of the junior class studies in another country. Through the Office of International Programs (OIP) BC has over 40 partnerships worldwide through which students are integrated into overseas universities.

Presidential Scholars are encouraged to take advantage of this educational opportunity. Over the years Scholars have gone to such diverse locations as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Iceland, Ireland, Mexico, England, France, Nepal, The Netherlands, Russia, Scotland, South Africa and Germany.

Scholars who study abroad on a BC administered program retain their scholarship. Scholars participating in non-BC administered study abroad programs will have their BC financial aid put on hold for the time they are away and will have the aid reinstated upon the student's return to BC. In many cases, state and federal financial aid may travel with students on non-BC administered programs.
