Parents

Welcome!

We applaud you for encouraging your student to take advantage of an abroad experience through Brown.  As a parent, you know how important cross-cultural competencies and global experience are in our society.  Thank you for visiting our site, and for supporting your son or daughter leading up to, during, and after his or her experience. 

Brown's Office of International Programs (OIP) provides undergraduate study abroad opportunities to approximately 600 students every year. As part of the Dean of the College, and in close partnership with Brown faculty, we advise and support students interested in study abroad, manage Brown Programs worldwide, process credit transfer for study abroad students, and sponsor international scholars visiting Brown.
