Student exchange and study abroad programs
Be ambitious. Be Purple. BU.

So you have decided to embark on an adventure abroad? We are excited for you!

At Bishop’s, we believe that attaining a global perspective and having an international experience are important strengths for achieving success, and that these strengths are central to our university’s mission. Spending time abroad improves communication skills, demonstrates confidence, a sense of curiosity, and an openness to change and to challenges – all qualities that today’s employers are looking for.
