Please consider the countless benefits of studying abroad. You will encounter new cultures, mature as a person, become more self-reliant and self-assured, and add the experience to your resume. Employers and graduate schools typically look very favorably upon those who have studied abroad. Heidelberg University offers many different study abroad experiences:

Note that if you would like to study in a country where Heidelberg currently does not have a program, you can apply to a Boston University or Butler University, schools that offer a variety of programs, or to the University of Virginia, which offers the Semester at Sea program. You can also work with organizations such as the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) or Australearn. Financial aid may be more difficult to obtain, however, should you opt for these types of study abroad opportunities.
Short-Term Study Programs
Heidelberg faculty regularly take classes or groups on trips abroad. In recent years, faculty members have taken students to Italy, Greece, Germany, Scotland, Belize, Mexico, and Canada.
