Finding A Program
Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs
Click on Short-Term Programs to read about some of the short-term programs available this summer and winter. Short-term programs are led by Longwood University faculty members and are associated with a Longwood University course. That means when you return, you do not have to worry about transferring credits back to Longwood.
Exchange programs allow students to study abroad at one of Longwood's internationally respected partner universities for the same per credit hour tuition rate as studying on Longwood's campus (room and board and other fees may apply). There are short-term and long-term options to meet a variety of student needs.
Independent/Third Party Programs
Longwood has affiliated with several well-known third party providers. These affiliated providers offer a wide variety of programs and may provide our students with special discounts and scholarships. Longwood students are not limited to these affiliated providers, however. Students may study abroad at any approved, credit-bearing program (the Office of International Affairs and registrar's office will work together to ensure these programs meet our standards).
Students may also choose to complete internships abroad. You will have to work closely with your academic advisor and the Study Abroad Office to ensure your internship will count toward your academic program.
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.
