COVID-19 Travel Update
Given the uncertain nature of COVID-19, the University of Lynchburg has made the decision to cancel all study abroad programs for the fall and for J Term 2020-2021. The University did not take this decision lightly, but felt it was necessary to ensure the health and safety of the campus community. Lynchburg will continue to monitor the situation before making any determinations about study abroad for spring and summer 2021. We remain optimistic, however, and encourage students to continue exploring study abroad options. In the event study abroad for the spring and/or summer 2021 is suspended, we will convey any decisions with as much advance notice as possible. The Center for Global Education will communicate with all students who have applied to participate in study abroad as more information is available.
Opportunities for Undergraduate and Graduate Students
We offer multiple faculty-led, exchange, and direct enrollment study abroad programs designed to prepare students for competitive careers in a global society. Our partnerships with colleges and universities around the world make study abroad accessible for more students. In fact, Lynchburg students are more than twice as likely to study abroad as their peers at similar schools. You can join them!
The following programs are offerings for upcoming terms. Please click on each program to be directed to the study abroad website for more information and to apply.
All itineraries are tentative and may have slight modifications depending on availability or extenuating circumstances that necessitate alterations made in the best interest of the program and the participants.
