Why Study Abroad?

Everybody has different reasons for wanting to study abroad. Which ones apply to you?

  • Learn a language.
  • Improve the other language(s) I know.
  • Live somewhere else.
  • See something different.
  • Do something fun.
  • Discover something new.
  • Get away.
  • Get some experience.
  • Get some perspective.
  • Find myself.
  • Lose myself.
  • Experience a whole different way of thinking and being and living, even if only for a few months, so that I can return with a new understanding of the world and my place in it.

Ask almost anyone who’s gone through one of our programs (and we can hook you up with hundreds of people to talk to, if you like), and they’ll say their time away was challenging, exciting, sobering, rewarding, and, in short, “one of the best things I’ve ever done.”

You really only have one chance to do it. So do it with the people who pioneered the whole idea and have created one of the best studying abroad infrastructures in the business: Boston University Study Abroad.

We can help you do any or all of the things on that list above. We possess the resources, knowledge, and staff to ensure you have a truly world-class experience…and that you come home a different person than the one who left the previous semester.
