Semester & Academic Year Study Abroad

Barnard provides a range of opportunities for students to go abroad for the semester and the academic year.  We advise you to attend a general info session (see events calendar) and make an appointment with an advisor at or by calling 212-853-0275. 

To supplement the information provided by this website, one of the best ways to learn more about what study abroad can offer you academically and personally is from other Barnard students who have studied abroad. We invite you to contact Barnard students who have studied abroad and are eager to share their experiences with other Barnard students. These students would be more than happy to answer questions you might have about the programs they attended and how they integrated study abroad into their Barnard education.

Please be sure to consult the list of Barnard approved programs.

Still deciding on a program? Check out, a new feedback website with study abroad program reviews from students all across the country (including our very own Barnard students.) You can search by country, city, top 10 programs etc.

Students are currently studying in Australia, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, South Africa, and Spain.
