Recommended Study Abroad Programs

Recommended Study Abroad Programs

Recommended programs are some of our favorites - with our Bard College Berlin (BCB) topping the list. Some recommended programs are not directly sponsored or officially affiliated with Bard, but hold a great value nonetheless.


Students may enroll directly into credit-bearing universities in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. However, such programs must be evaluated by the dean of international studies and approved by the Executive Committee before students enroll. To learn more about such opportunities, students should consult with the dean of international studies and the director of career services.Students should also seek the advice of their German Program adviser to discuss if a certain university (and their respective course offerings) is recommendable and suitable to their planned senior projects.

Pre-Trip Requirements: In order to study abroad and receive full credit, students must submit a Petition for Study Abroad, which must be approved by the student’s academic advisor, the Study Abroad Adviser, and the Dean of Studies.
