Engage in a world class experience, Study Abroad.
At Wake Forest, we believe international learning experiences can significantly impact your intellectual, personal and professional growth. When studying abroad, book knowledge comes alive. You experience culture and history firsthand. Your perspectives broaden. You leave a student and return a global citizen.
In 1971, the University acquired an historic site located on the Grand Canal in Venice that formerly housed the American Consulate as its first overseas residence. Since then, the University has acquired residences in Vienna and London, established the Center for Global Programs and Studies and broadened the scope of both university-sponsored and affiliate programs.
Today, Wake Forest offers more than 400 semester, summer and year-long study abroad programs in 200 cities in more than 70 countries worldwide. More than 60% of Wake Forest undergraduates take advantage of these opportunities. These programs have challenging coursework, and many have opportunities for internships, field study, independent research, language partnerships, community service, organized group excursions and personal travel.
Regardless of your major, your background or your circumstances, you can fulfill your dream to expand your world and travel abroad. Scholarships are also available to help you make that dream a reality.
So, begin your journey now by exploring this site and learn how you can join the class to experience the world.
