Study Abroad Programs At UC Blue Ash College

UC Blue Ash College Study Abroad Logo

While learning in the classroom is an essential part of higher education, life experiences such as meeting new people in different parts of the world can transform and shape a person for the rest of their life.

Students who study abroad often claim they return a completely different person with a newfound respect for diversity and a fresh perspective. Having the opportunity to step (or leap!) out of one’s comfort zone, perhaps for the first time, is priceless


All Around The World

UC Blue Ash has hosted more than 30 study abroad trips since the program was founded at the school in 1997. Students and teachers have learned and explored in locations such as Germany, England, Austria, France, Costa Rica, Canada, and Perú. 

2018 Study Abroad Programs Are Now Closed to New Applications

The 2019 Study Abroad Programs will be accepting applications for those interested in participating in the two programs for next year. Students should plan ahead and make sure they take the time to figure out all the planning for their courses, time away form work or family, and determining financial resources.
