Where possible, Brown requires students to pursue their studies entirely in the language spoken in the host country. If the program you are considering requires language proficiency to apply, you must take all of your coursework in the local language. Students studying in host countries with the following local languages must take all of their coursework in that language:
English Language Programs
Students may enroll in English language study abroad programs at institutions where the local language is not normally offered at Brown. In such cases, students are required to study the local language as part of their academic program.
- If you are taking courses in English in a country where the host language is not English, you must take one course in the local language (e.g. a Danish language course on the Brown in Denmark Program).
- If you are on an Alternative Program that allows you to take regular university courses at local institutions, at least half of your courses must be taken at the local institutions in the local language.
