Bard students who wish to study abroad are encouraged to seek out programs that allow them to attend classes within foreign universities, as opposed to those offering courses attended solely by Americans. Bard offers such integrated programs at universities in Berlin, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan; and East Jerusalem. The College also participates in several exchanges, consortiums, and other special programs that can facilitate study abroad: Bard undergraduates study in nearly 50 countries each year.
