There are many wonderful options to investigate! Bennington students frequently participate in programs sponsored by the School for International Training (SIT), the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA), Academic Programs International (API), and the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE). Students also participate in programs sponsored by other colleges, such as Sweet Briar College’s Junior Year in France or Middlebury College’s language programs across the globe. There are many other programs, however, that you should consider, and you can use IIE Passport or Study Abroad.Com to discover more possibilities. Additionally, you should speak with your faculty advisor, classroom teachers, Plan committee, and Kendra Ericson, the assistant director for academic services as you explore your options. Talking to representatives in Downstairs Commons or talking to students who have returned from study abroad are other good ways to gather information.
