Why participate in a Bing Overseas Studies Program?

Every Stanford undergraduate should give serious consideration to studying away

Your time with BOSP will equip you with transformative educational experiences that inspire you to embrace new challenges in complex global settings. Nearly one-half of each graduating class studies away through BOSP during their undergraduate career at Stanford.

Coming to Asia and exploring countries outside the US was so eye-opening and life changing. I was able to experience so many different cultures and ways of living from eating to learning to even commuting. Some courses offered were applicable for WAYS requirements. In general, partnering with one of the best institutions in Asia allowed us to see what the learning environment overseas is like.
