The University at Buffalo School of Nursing has an active and exciting international presence offering multicultural and international enrichment opportunities.
There are many significant opportunities available internationally, in the United States and in the greater Buffalo-Niagara community that allow students to experience a different cultural environment. Here at the School of Nursing, we value service to our community and offer opportunities to work with multicultural populations in a variety of settings.
The sequential and compact nature of our prerequisites and upper division curriculum make it difficult for nursing students to participate in an entire semester-long study abroad experience. It is unlikely that you will be able to complete prerequisite courses while abroad and it is not permissible to take upper division nursing courses at another institution.
However, students who plan ahead and stay on track academically have the opportunity to study abroad for an entire semester with guidance from their academic advisor. Students may choose to spend the spring semester of sophomore year abroad. In order to accomplish this, students may need to attend summer school between their freshman and sophomore years. Additionally, students may need to take 1-2 additional courses during regular semesters to complete all requirements. Students interested in exploring this option are asked to work with an academic advisor in the School of Nursing to map out an appropriate curricular plan. Visit the Study Abroad website to learn about semester long abroad opportunities.
Summer and Winter Abroad Options
The University’s Study Abroad Office offers an array of summer and winter abroad options for students. Studying abroad over the summer or winter semester break offers students an opportunity to participate in a study abroad experience without interfering with the sequencing of coursework and allows students to stay academically on track.
