Finding A Program
Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs
Click on Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs to read about some of the short-term programs available this summer and winter. These programs usually last 2-4 weeks and are led by Longwood faculty members. Students who attend these programs will earn credit for an associated Longwood University course.
You may also study abroad in a one-for-one exchange program provided by one of Longwood's respected partner schools abroad. Exchange programs are a very economical option because students pay the same tuition and fees as they would if they were taking classes on Longwood's campus. Just pay separate room and board, airfare, and any other fees the host university may require. Most exchange programs are semester- or year-long programs, but there are some short-term options available.
Visit our Affiliate Providers page to learn more about third-party providers with which Longwood has a partnership. Often these programs provide students of affiliate schools with discounts and scholarships not available to the general public.
If you can't find the right program on our website you may conduct an internet search. Visit Online Resources for some relevant websites. Longwood students can study abroad in any legitimate, credit-bearing study abroad program. Consult with your academic advisor to find out if credits from the program you choose will transfer to Longwood.
Arranging your Programs
One of the first steps when choosing a program abroad is consulting with your academic advisor in your major. Take the information you have found about your program abroad to your advisor to discuss the courses you will take there and what credit you will receive for them.
Follow the checklist for all of the procedures you must follow to arrange your program abroad, and plan to submit your applications well in advance of the deadlines on the checklist.
