Study Abroad Programs

Study Abroad with UC Blue Ash College

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 like Germany, England, Austria, France, Costa Rica, Canada and Perú.

Information Sessions & Workshops

The best way to learn about your options for participating in Study Abroad at UC Blue Ash College is to attend an information session or luncheon. Meet representatives and other students interested in study abroad at one of these events.
