EDUCATION ABROAD
Globe of flags; celebrating 50 years of Davidson Study Abroad
Education abroad is an invaluable opportunity that supplements the Davidson undergraduate experience. Students have the opportunity to choose from several Davidson sponsored programs and from over 100 academic programs that are operated by partner providers around the world. Each year, well over half of our graduating class studies abroad for a year, semester or summer.

Please click on Application Process if you are considering study abroad in the near future.

ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION ABROAD:

Spring 2021
Davidson’s study abroad application process is open for approved Spring 2021 partner programs that are currently scheduled to run. Please be aware that partner organizations and OEA staff are monitoring conditions closely; any program may be modified or canceled based on travel advisories and local conditions at any time prior to program start. Destinations that have a U.S. State Department Level 4 travel alert will not be open for applications. Students must also bear in mind that Davidson will not apply financial aid toward programs or travel when there is a CDC Level 2 or higher warning in effect at the program site. The deadline for all Spring 2021 applications is October 1. (Note that all requirements for the Davidson AND partner applications are due by this date.)

Note: The International Education Committee is not accepting petition applications for the Spring 2021 application cycle due to the widespread travel restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

The Office of Study Abroad has changed to the Office of Education Abroad in keeping with the field and in recognition of the wider breadth of international educational opportunities for students. Changes are underway on the webpage, and the term “study abroad” will still be searchable and applicable.
For the class of 2023 and future classes, Davidson College will follow a home tuition policy for fall, spring, and academic year study abroad.  Under this policy, students who study abroad with a partner program will pay to Davidson the College’s study abroad and tuition fees, and the College will pay the partner program’s tuition cost to that program (up to Davidson’s tuition fee).  Students will pay all other program costs, including a non-refundable deposit, directly to the partner program. This policy aligns Davidson’s practices with many other U.S. colleges and universities.
