Affiliated Non-Villanova Programs

international flags

There are hundreds of different study abroad programs for students to choose all over the world! If a Villanova program doesn’t fit your academic needs, the OIS encourages you to search though our list of affilated programs.

To help you sort through the many options, the OIS has categorized the universities and programs that Villanova students have attended in the past and sorted them by world regions. When looking over the options, try not to focus just on ‘familiar’ countries or locations. The right program for you might be in a more ‘non-traditional’ location. Villanova students have studied on every continent (except Antarctica) so you shouldn’t feel restricted by geography.

As always, if you have any questions, your OIS adviser will be able to guide you towards the right type of program for your academic and personal needs.

Defining Terms

Direct enroll - In choosing a Direct Enroll program, you will apply directly to the overseas university's international student office for the semester you plan to study abroad. Most of these university's provide comprehensive on-site orientations, housing arrangements, and an attentive support staff. You should expect to act more independently when choosing a direct enroll study abroad program.

Program Provider - This term refers to an American-based non-profit organizations that coordinate applications, on-site orientations, and often have their own in-country staff. If applying through a program provider, you will send your application directly to the U.S. provider.

Field Study Program - These programs offer you the opportunity to participate in hands-on research in your field of interest. Topics vary by location, but most majors and interests can be pursued.  

Host Language - If the program lists a language other than English, the program will require at least some background in the host language. Some programs will have all classes taught in the host country's language, while others may have a combination of English and local languages offerings. Classes may be designed specifically for foreign students in a Study Center and some classes may be offered directly at the host university. Many programs will combine classes for study abroad students with one-two classes taught at host university. More advanced language students are encouraged to enroll in all host university classes.

English Language - Denotes that most classes are taught in English in a non-English speaking country.  All students must still enroll in at least one class in the host language (i.e. Danish 101) while abroad in a non-English speaking country. Advanced language students will be placed at a higher language level based on previous experience and are encouraged to pursue Host Language programs to advance their language immersion. Some classes will be held at the Study Center for foreign students, while other classes may be taught in English at a host university.
