Apply for a semester at BISLA

If you want to spend a semester in an academic- and diversity-friendly environment with a unique atmosphere and Western liberal arts program, you are more than welcome to join us at BISLA.

How to apply for a semester at BISLA

If your university is an exchange partner with BISLA [insert link to info in the Erasmus section above], you can apply for a study abroad period at your own school’s international office. If your school is not among the listed partner institutions, we encourage you to email us and ask about possibilities.

Application deadlines:

  •      Fall Semester: April 30
  •      Spring Semester: November 15

Once you have been selected by your home institution, fill out and submit the Exchange Application form. Also send the following:

  1. a photo of yourself
  2. a scan or copy of your transcripts
  3. a scan or copy of your advisor’s approval (if applicable)

After receiving your application, BISLA will send you a confirmation email and start the admissions procedure by evaluating your educational background and course selection. An interview via Skype will also be scheduled. Applicants are notified of acceptance or rejection usually within a month of the initial application.

Housing: BISLA has no on-campus housing or dorms. However, BISLA staff assist international students in finding accommodation near the school for the duration of their study abroad semester.

Ask us for a BISLA Course Catalogue to see courses available during the semester you have chosen to study at BISLA. For more information about BISLA, see the [insert link About US].
