Meet With A Bing Overseas Studies Program Student Ambassador

Are you curious about what goes on during a day in the life of a student studying abroad, or just about what it's like to spend 10 weeks away from the Stanford campus? Speak with a BOSP student ambassador!

Before speaking with us

  • Read through the Overseas Studies website to learn about the academic opportunities and the unique personality of each program. Think about what you would like to get out of your time abroad, and see which program fits those goals.  You can also view a comparison chart of all BOSP programs.

Gateways to the World Courses

The Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages (DLCL) offer coures appropriate to introducing students to a new culture and location and are a great way to get to know the region before you go abroad.  The list of courses offered as part of this initiative range from cultural, historical and political components of the region, and greatly enhance a students experience both before, during and after the program.  Additional consideration during the application process for these programs are given to students taking these courses.
