Welcome to Study Abroad at Providence College!
Providence College students have the following study abroad options:
Semester Study Abroad
Providence College works with approved study abroad providers that can be found in over 40 countries. From application management to onsite support and transcript evaluation, these organizations administer all aspects of the study abroad experience. Providers offer study centers designed for American students and direct enrollment options at local institutions for students to complete courses. Many programs also include internship placements and independent research, as well as local orientation programs and educational excursions.
Summer Study Abroad
Students may elect to spend a summer abroad in lieu of, or in addition to, a semester program. Summer study abroad is also done through program providers, therefore providing many of the same options as semester programs. While program lengths vary, the typical summer program is between 4-6 weeks. Students must complete the summer study abroad application by March 15, 2019.
Each year several exceptional programs are offered to Providence College students. These are PC courses with a faculty-led overseas component, typically ranging from 1-3 weeks. These courses combine classroom study with real-world experiences, allowing students to gain international insight on their field of study.
Follow these step-by-step instructions to make studying abroad for a semester or year a reality.
