Exchange Programs

The LC study abroad exchange program gives you the opportunity to enroll in classes at one of LC’s sister schools. You’ll earn transfer credits for the classes you take if you receive a letter grade of “C” or better.

Both aid from LC and external financial aid are available for programs that take place within the academic year. During the summer, only external financial aid is applicable.

You will pay your tuition directly to Lynchburg College. It is your responsibility to cover your international airfare and living costs while abroad – room and board and personal expenses.

If you are interested, schedule an appointment with the our office to begin the application process.


Fachhochschule Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH-V)

Dornbirn, Austria

Students enrolled in LC’s School of Business and Economics have the opportunity to spend the fall semester at the College’s sister school in Austria.

The coursework, conducted in English and taught by a global team of faculty, focuses on international business and management. You’ll take classes with Austrian and international students. The university also offers a German language course. There is a residence hall for international students.

“We have many different professors from different parts of the world teaching our classes, which gives us different world perspectives we wouldn’t get otherwise. There are 60 international students here this semester, not including the local Austrian students, and we all work very closely together in groups on a regular basis, and they, too, bring many different perspectives to the table.” – Austin Jones ’10 (Management)

Hannam University

Daejeon, South Korea

Hannam University’s Center for International Relations (CIR) offers LC students the opportunity to study in South Korea for a full semester.

Courses at the University’s Linton Global College are taught in English, though students are encouraged to enroll in a Korean language class during their studies at Hannam.

LC students may also spend part of the summer exploring a new culture and way of life by attending Hannam University’s Korean Studies Summer Program (KSSP). Students enroll in a 3-credit course focusing on Korean language and culture. During the KSSP, students will take part in cultural activities and excursions with their Korean “buddies” — an excellent way to experience Korean culture and make lifelong friends.

Students enrolled in the KSSP do not have to pay tuition to LC, but are expected to cover their international airfare and personal expenses while in South Korea.
