Study in a new kind of classroom.

Take a look through the hundreds of academic programs in a variety of disciplines around the world available to you as a Longwood student. Study alongside fellow Lancers on a faculty-led short-term program in the summer or winter. Enroll in courses at a foreign university through our exchange or affiliated partners. Do field research in environments much different than central Virginia. Strengthen your foreign language skills by communicating with locals -- perhaps even living with a host family. Learn about cultures different than your own by living and learning in communities that challenge your ways of thinking. 

But how?

Don't worry. We know you have questions. We have the answers. Stressed about funding? Earn scholarships to help finance your study abroad program. Talk to our staff about the most affordable options available to you. Not sure how studying abroad can fit into your academic plan? We'll help you find a program that meets your interests and needs. Afraid you'll be missing out on life in Virginia if you go? Turn that thought around: Imagine the experiences you will have by exploring something new.

Students at Longwood can study abroad for as little as two weeks all the way up to an academic year, and many programs are financially comparable to staying on campus. Studying abroad opens up a world of opportunities to you: earn course credit in dynamic new settings, become more attractive to potential employers and graduate programs, and engage with citizens from around the world, all while gaining a global perspective that will serve you well throughout your lifetime. Longwood is dedicated to the development of student leaders. Push yourself further and add a global perspective to your studies.
