The Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) provides opportunities for Stanford students to broaden their undergraduate education through study in another country and immersion in its culture. Regular programs in Australia, Beijing, Berlin, Florence, Kyoto, Madrid, Moscow, Oxford, Paris, and Santiago offer courses in engineering, humanities, sciences, and social sciences with full Stanford credit. Many courses also count toward major requirements and/or fulfill General Education Requirements. Students may enroll for one or more quarters at most locations. Academic or paid internships are available at the Berlin, Florence, Kyoto-SCTI, Madrid, Moscow, and Paris programs. Research opportunities are available in various formats at different centers. Minimum academic and language prerequisites are specific to each program. See for information on these requirements.

While studying overseas through BOSP, students remain registered at Stanford and pay regular tuition, along with the overseas fee, which is based on Stanford room and board rates. Regular financial aid applies, and may be increased to cover additional costs. At most centers, students live in a homestay or with local students.

Overseas Studies also offers a limited number of special programs including, in 2008-09, ten three-week faculty-led seminars at overseas locations.

Overseas Studies, located on the ground floor of Sweet Hall, has full-time staff members and student advisers to assist in planning for overseas study. Course information, while accurate at the time of publication, is subject to change. See for updated information.
