Learn more about Study Abroad
Studying in Northern Ireland has not only taught me independence but also improved my communication and adaptability skills. I’ve made so many friends here that I will most likely be connected with for the rest of my life. Being an international student may be intimidating, but it is sure worth the experience.


You should begin planning for a study abroad experience as early as possible by talking to your academic advisor and the International Programs Coordinator. Students typically study abroad during their junior year at Blackburn, though exceptions can be made. Information sessions are held each fall, and applications are due in January for the upcoming summer and academic year (fall or spring).




During the abroad semester students are billed as residents, including applicable financial aid, and are responsible for Blackburn room and board fees. The Office of International Programs pays the cost of the study abroad program’s tuition, room, and board and will make every effort to cover airfare to/from the international destination.
