Exchanges for BU Students Only

If you are seeking a highly independent and culturally immersed study abroad program, an exchange may be right for you. On an exchange program, you will enroll directly at one of our partner universities and take your classes with local students. This model offers levels of authenticity and autonomy that are not often available through other study abroad programs. Our exchange partners include prestigious institutions in several countries and most offer courses in English.

Participating in an exchange is affordable and simple: while you are participating on an exchange program, you will pay regular BU tuition to Boston University and your financial aid will apply as usual. Courses you take abroad will appear on your transcript as BU credits. Explore the exchange options below and contact Marisa Crowley to begin planning for your exchange.

Claflin University Exchange
Orangeburg, South Carolina
