Exchanges for BU Students Only
Exchange programs and consortium programs offer Boston University students the unique opportunity to enroll directly at a number of prestigious universities and programs in a variety of locations. While many of the exchange programs focus on particular academic areas, many also offer a broader curriculum that allows students to complete coursework that is not available through other avenues.
Exchange programs often present an exciting opportunity for students to pursue a more independent style of learning and cultural engagement.
