There are 6 comments on New Programs Announced for BU Study Abroad

  1. It’s quite intriguing that BU has so many international students from Asia(China, Korea, Taiwan, and etc), yet has no program with the universities in those countries. Or am I mistaken, that BU does have some programs with the Asian schools, yet not shown here? I urge the university to expand its ties to more Asian universities.

    1. The text is actually clear (followed later with a link to the full list of ‘over 90’):

      In the map above, click on the markers to watch videos of some of the BU Study Abroad programs BU Today has visited.

      This is neither all the programs offered nor all the programs for which BU Today has video according to the caption under the map.

  2. The article is incorrect — BU has not “lacked study abroad opportunities in Africa” until now; for many years there was a program in Niamey, Niger that was cancelled due to security concerns in 2011. Senegal and Zanzibar are much safer choices, though.

    1. Unfortunately, BU still doesn’t have a Korea program. I actually went abroad to Korea twice- once in the summer and once in the spring (followed by an amazing internship in the Korean Government geared towards foreigners.)

      There are plenty of resources if you want to study there. Here are the two programs I did. They were both taught in English, but provided HUGE chances to learn Korean. I credit my fluency in Korean to my time studying there (I didn’t speak before I went the first time).

      Both of these are in Seoul and are wonderful!
