How to Study Abroad Weekly Webinar
Every Wednesday at 2:30 PM (Eastern Standard time) BCA Study Abroad offers students a chance to learn more about the study abroad process, who to speak with on their campus as they prepare to study abroad, and things to consider when choosing a study abroad program. They also have a chance to ask any questions that they may have about the study abroad process, BCA and our programs! These sessions are led by either a BCA Peer Advisor or a member of our Central Office staff all of whom have their own study abroad experience and will be able to answer any questions they may have.
The webinar is meant to support your efforts to provide them with guidance about the study abroad process. Students are encouraged to speak with their home school study abroad advisors, academic advisors, financial aid offices, and their families as they begin to research studying abroad. The webinar is geared toward students who are just starting to explore the possibility of studying abroad.

Meet the BCA RD Informational Webinars
Each semester we hold one program specific webinar for each of our semester programs. These webinars are typically led by our BCA Resident Director and offer a Q & A approach to learning about the program. The RD opens with a brief introduction to the program and then students are encouraged to ask any questions that they have about the program. It’s a helpful way for students to connect with the RD and have specific program questions answered as they research their study abroad options. Summer program webinars are held in the spring semester only and students are able to attend as many program webinars as they would like.
Please note all times listed are Eastern Standard Time (EST)!
