Q: What are the requirements to become an exchange student?

A: Students are chosen to represent BU International based on their academic success and good conduct.  Students should have completed at least 36 credits with a GPA of 2.75 or higher before applying. Specific English proficiency requirements vary by school, but most require the equivalent of TOEFL 550 or IELTS 5.5.  Some universities in Japan require Japanese language proficiency.  The student must be approved for participation by BU International before the request will be forwarded to the overseas university.
