Study Abroad at Belmont

Belmont University’s Office of Study Abroad (OSA) is housed on the first floor of the Janet Ayers Academic Center (formerly Wedgewood Academic Center) in Room 1009. OSA staff can:

  • counsel you about your study abroad program options
  • assist you with the study abroad application process
  • pre-approve academic credit prior to departure
  • advise you of important visa, health and travel safety information

Study Abroad Advising

Are you interested in studying abroad but unsure of where to begin? Your first step is advising. Come in during our walk-in advising hours or request an advising appointment with OSA staff to explore all of the opportunities available to you.

Preparation for Advising & Study Abroad 101's

Prior to meeting with OSA for Study Abroad advising, please complete this advising questionnaire and explore the programs available to you.

If you are interested in studying abroad for a semester or a year, you are encouraged to attend a Study Abroad 101 session. These are hour-long sessions that go over the basics of long-term study abroad, including program offerings, application process, academics, cost and financial aid. Study Abroad 101's are held on the first Wednesday of the month during the regular academic year when classes are in session.

For Maymester and summer faculty-led programs, check the campus calendar for a variety of information sessions held throughout the fall and early spring. 

Academic Advising

Your academic advisor can also be an important resource in exploring how study abroad will fit into your academic plan. Start discussions about study abroad with your academic advisor early in your Belmont career, as this can ensure your ability to go abroad and fulfill course requirements.
