Boston University Study Abroad and COVID-19

Boston University’s Study Abroad locations around the world continue to prioritize the health, safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff.

In delivering our programs, we will make compassionate, respectful decisions in consultation with local public health authorities, experts at BU, and our sites around the world.

We look forward to welcoming students again in Fall 2021. Much information about COVID-19, travel regulations, and on-site health and safety protocols will change in the coming months. Please check this page regularly for the latest information and updates.
