Do note: Some of our exchange programs require language background. You may want to consider taking a language course prior to your exchange.

Go Abroad Opportunities

Third Year
If you want to go in 3A, all study abroad and exchange opportunities offered by the Faculty of Arts are available to you, providing the semesters line up with our own. In addition, here is a list of schools that previous GBDA students have attended and courses they have taken. This can help you determine a school you might be interested in.

Fourth Year
If you are going abroad in 4A, you are only permitted to consider our recommended exchange partners (PDF) to mitigate conflicts with the timeline of mandatory internships.
