Study Abroad Update for Summer 2021

To ensure the safety and well-being of Bushnell students and faculty, Summer 2021 Faculty Led Study Abroad programs will be postponed to Summer 2022*. This decision comes after close monitoring of the progression of the COVID-19 global pandemic in the US and in study abroad host nations, as well as consideration of evolving travel restrictions and uncertainties. Some of our partnering organizations are still planning to offer programs in-person or virtually in 2021*, and information about those opportunities can be obtained by contacting your academic advisor, Bushnell Global Ambassador Robbie McGowen, or Chair of Global Programs Dr. Tim Veach. We hope that students continue to pursue life activities on a global scale, and we are excited to share updates about 2022 study abroad programs – coming soon!

* there may be some adjustment of study abroad destination countries due to specific program availability

Studying abroad is about much more than just having a great travel experience – it can produce significant returns on your investment for your academic, personal, and professional life.

There are three main ways you can study abroad at Bushnell University:

  1. Bushnell University Faculty Summer Program (England/Ireland, Mexico, Greece/Turkey for Summer 2021)
  2. Exchange Programs
  3. Semester Study Abroad

There are many career benefits to studying abroad. Studying abroad can help you compete in an increasingly global workforce. In fact, 73% of employers say study abroad is important when evaluating resumes of junior-level position candidates. In addition, 90% of employers believe that students who have studied abroad are likely to possess highly desirable skills.

Bushnell University has joined the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad initiative to help more Americans gain international experience through study abroad programs. IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative seeks to mobilize resources and commitments with the goal of doubling and diversifying the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade.
