BV Study Abroad

Your partner for customized abroad experiences.

With BV Study Abroad, you can create an abroad experience that is tailor-made for your course, a program that is integrated into your syllabus. Contact us to create a quality, customized education abroad experience.

Here is how it works

BV Study Abroad has over 15 years experience in educational design to build amazing programs for educational travel.
Here is how we work!

1. We meet

If possible, a BV representative will travel to your campus to meet with you. We believe this in-person contact is best to establish trust, to learn about your programs, and to really understand your objectives. While on campus, we can also make a presentation to students.

2. We create

Following our meeting, we will start building your program. This involves reaching out to our local partners, confirming activities, speakers and site visits, all while validating with you every step of the way to ensure that everything is suited to your objectives.

3. We experience

With BV Study Abroad, the travel experience begins before departure. Indeed, we offer an online, or an on-campus pre-trip presentation to students. We find this puts students at ease and motivates them even more. Once at the destination, a BV team member will meet you at the airport and accompany you throughout your experience.

Customizing a program may seem daunting, but there is nothing like having an experience abroad that is perfectly suited to your course. Also, if you decide to return, we will go through the same steps above and adapt the program to any of your course changes. Partnering with BV is like having extra staff member on your team.

We have over 15 years experience

in international education

Our goal is to become a partner in education – offering the best possible service before, during and after the trip

What partners have said


Through my professional career I have partnered with numerous organisations to send students for abroad curricular experiences. I have to say that Patrick Hurley and BV Study Abroad have been the most dedicated, professional, and accommodating. Through our partnership, they have worked closely with our administration and faculty members to ensure an annual experience that not only meets, but exceeds our expectations.

Owen Hooper Director, Accelerated Summer and Intersession Academic Programs Innovative Education, University of South Florida

As Canada is America’s largest trading partner, it is important to provide our students with a program to learn about our neighbour, to experience its culture, and to develop relationships for future opportunities. Under Patrick’s professionalism, dedication and coordination, student satisfaction has consistently been very high.

Sheb True, Ph.D Professor and Sr. International Liaison Officer for the Dean Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University

We brought students to Quebec City for 10 days in July to work on their start-up projects with local entrepreneurs. It was an incredible, hands-on experience both academically as well as culturally. The students learned so much about Quebec City’s vibrant culture and its entrepreneurial spirit.
