Bellevue University Student Kayla B. Interning Abroad in Ireland, Summer 2013

IEP - International Education Programs at Bellevue University - offers affordable study, volunteer, service learning, and internship programs to students throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific.

Why Study Abroad?

You Can Earn Academic Credit

When choosing a country to study in, course options should be a consideration. Credits may transfer back as pass/fail, elective, upper division, core curriculum, or general education hours.

Language Acquisition

Language is a powerful tool that shapes the way we view the world. The ability to speak more than one language is a valuable skill for a student’s professional and personal life. Organizations worldwide give preference to applicants who are skilled in a second language. Equally important, foreign language acquisition enriches a person's understanding of his or her own native language.

Gain Practical Experience

This is an incredible way to gain real-world experience in a particular field. For example, international business majors can learn more about global markets simply by shopping in downtown London or Bangkok. Spanish majors can earn Spanish language credits while practicing conversation with their host family or roommates in Latin America or Spain.

Have An Unforgettable Experience

Studying abroad can give you out-of-classroom exposure to cultures, language, ideas, and traditions that you may not experience in your hometown. If you wish, we can put you in touch with a past participant; so you have a better idea of what to expect.

Internship and Volunteer Programs

Customized internship and volunteer opportunities offered by IEP allow students and recent graduates to focus their academic studies, gain relevant work experience, and immerse themselves in the society of a foreign country.

Summer 2014 Programs

In addition to our single-destination summer programs, there are now several multi-country summer options available. These programs allow you to visit two to four countries while earning credit.
