Bellarmine student in Hong Kong
There are a plethora of options for Bellarmine students to study abroad during the summer. It is a great way for students to stay on track or get ahead in their course load for the next academic year! These programs are typically between three and five weeks in length, earning three to six credit hours at a reduced rate or no cost, and varying in cost from $3000 to $6000 (this normally includes airfare, accommodation, some meals and excursions, insurance, etc.). It is a great option for General Education courses, requirements in the major or minor, or to add study options and expand an academic area not available on our campus.
Bellarmine’s main summer study abroad options are via the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad (CCSA, www.ccsa.studioabroad.com) and Kentucky Institute of International Studies (KIIS, www.kiis.org). CCSA offers programs in English-speaking destinations such as the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Belize, West Africa, etc., and courses are taught in English. KIIS offers study options in non-English speaking destinations, such as Austria, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Turkey, etc. Courses are taught in English, but language courses are offered at several of these destinations.
