International students applying to one of Boston University’s exchange programs must first consult the International Office at their home institution. For most exchange programs, the home institution has a separate application and selection process that must happen first. Once exchange students have been approved and nominated by the home institution, they will be invited to complete the Boston University Exchange Student Application.  Please do not contact BU Study Abroad to confirm your nomination.  Your exchange program coordinator should be able to answer all of your questions, or reach out to BU if necessary, before the application invite is sent out.
