Providence College is proud to partner with the
University of Birmingham in England.
In addition to our approved study abroad options offered by program providers, students have the opportunity to be considered to study away from PC at one of our partner institutions by participating in a student exchange. The International Exchange Program enables eligible PC students to study at the University of Birminhgam – both distinguished intitutions– while earning PC credit and being immersed in the culture of some of the world's most exciting cities.
Students who are approved to participate in the Birmingham exchanges pay PC tuition which allows you to maintain your financial aid package, including grants and scholarships (unique partner fees may be required). Non-tuition fees, such as housing, are paid to the partner institution in the local currency. For more information on financing your semester(s) abroad, please read more about our
Home School Tuition policy.
In an exchange program, students are integrated directly into the host university. This requires students to be self-reliant and independent. Ask yourself the following questions to help determine your comfort with this level of independence:
It is important to acknowledge the challenges that an exchange student may encounter. Meeting these challenges, however, demonstrates that exchange program participants have experienced tremendous growth in the skills and traits many employers value in job candidates: independence, problem-solving ability, self motivation, tolerance, cultural awareness, and adaptability, among others.
You must contact the office at your university that manages the nomination process to learn how your school selects nominees. Please see contact information below:

Students applying for, or already admitted to, Providence College should direct any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are enrolled at a University that is not a partner with PC you cannot participate in an exchange program for temporary study at our institution.
