Afterward, you’ll want to review the visa and permit requirements by visiting our Visas and Permits page.

We encourage student mobility internationally and make it easy to all qualified students to study abroad. You may choose to study one term or more at one of our international campuses without interrupting your program of studies. Simply start the process two terms ahead of your planned travel date by meeting with your academic advisor.

Webster World Traveler Award

The purpose of this award is to provide round-trip airfare to degree-seeking students at Webster University wishing to study abroad at another location and return to their home campus to complete their degrees. This award is not applicable to students wishing to apply for a permanent site-transfer.

For students enrolled at a European campus, eligible travel includes Webster campuses in the United States, or China (note that not all programs are available at all campuses).

Qualifications for the Webster World Traveler Award:

  • Must successfully complete a minimum of one eight-week term (six credits) abroad as a full-time student.
  • Must remain enrolled as a full-time student in good standing while abroad in accordance with Webster University policy and local immigration law.
  • Must complete a minimum of 30 additional credit hours at Webster University, which may include credits earned while abroad or completion of the degree program at Webster University.
  • Successfully fulfill the service obligation to be determined in consultation with the Study Abroad Office. The students, for example, would agree, on their return to Webster Leiden, to talk to current students about their experience, the added value to their education and the lasting impact on their world view. By so doing they would encourage studying abroad to other students.
  • If you decide to change the ticket once it has been booked, you are financially responsible for any change fee and re-booking.

Tuition Fees

While studying abroad you remain a Webster Leiden student and continue to pay your tuition fees to the Business office at the Athens campus.

The WINS (Webster International Network of Schools) program allows students outside the Webster University network to study abroad. If you choose to study at Webster Leiden, the credits you obtain will count towards the institution of higher learning you are currently registered in.
