The experiential third year is the hallmark of the BIB experience. You can spend one or two terms studying at a partner institution in a country where your BIB language is spoken. You may also complete an international internship.

Immersion in your language of study and a new culture is a vital to developing cross-cultural skills and an international perspective.

During your terms of study abroad on exchange, you will pay Carleton University tuition fees.  You will also be responsible for travel costs, comprehensive insurance, and living costs.  Living costs are estimated at approximately $1,000 Cdn/month.  Approved courses taken on exchange will be added to your Carleton academic record.
