Welcome to Study Abroad at Providence College!
Providence College students have the following study abroad options:
Semester Study Abroad
- Provider: Study abroad providers are organizations that administer all aspects of the study abroad experience: from application management to onsite support and transcript evaluation. Approved provider programs can be found in over 40 countries and allow students to complete courses at study centers designed for American students or at local institutions through direct enrollment. Many programs also include internship placements and independent research, as well as local orientation programs and educational excursions.
- Exchange: Exchange programs foster academic immersion via direct enrollment at either the University of Birmingham in England or the NEOMA Business School in France. The exchange model provides an enriching cultural experience and is highly recommended for students who are prepared to engage independently in their host institution abroad.
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 through provider organizations, and students have many of the same options available to them as semester study abroad students. While program lengths vary, the typical summer program is between 4-6 weeks.
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.
