2013 Overseas Seminar Locations
Overseas Seminars are an exciting and rewarding way for short-term study abroad with Stanford University. Taught and led by Stanford faculty, these Overseas Seminars are two-unit classes offered for three weeks during summer. Overseas Seminars are specifically designed to integrate course content and program location. These seminars are designed to provide undergraduate students with alternative study abroad opportunities and locations beyond the BOSP quarter-length program offerings.
For the summer of 2013, BOSP is pleased to offer seminars in Austria, Brazil, Costa Rica, India, Israel, Madagascar, Republic of Palau, and Wales/UK. NOTE: The specific seminar dates, facilities and activities are subject to change depending on available resources and other operational considerations that may arise for a successful implementation of the seminar.

NOTE: The seminar dates indicate the arrival and departures dates in the specific seminar location. The arrival date in the seminar location may not be the same as departure date from the US. You will probably have to depart the U.S. one day earlier for most of the overseas seminar locations because you will fly overnight.
