When to Apply

Students are encouraged to apply one year in advance. There is limited space each semester. Once the program reaches capacity, accepted students may request to join a waiting list or defer their application to another semester.


The program is open to undergraduate students attending Berklee or select partner schools.

To be eligible for study abroad, students must:

  1. be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their institution at the time of application and remain in good standing each semester leading up to the program*;
  2. have completed at least two semesters by the program start date; and
  3. maintain full-time enrollment while abroad.

Non-Berklee students must also meet the study abroad eligibility requirements of their home institution.

*The Study Abroad Office reserves the right to revoke admission to the program if a student is placed on academic or disciplinary probation after being accepted but before the start of the program. Students in this situation will be responsible for any non-refundable fees related to the program.


Decision notifications begin in January for the following fall and spring semesters. Students will receive a decision by email. Some applicants may be contacted for an in-person interview.
