Start Abroad for Freshmen

The Baylor Start Abroad program allows incoming freshmen to spend their first Baylor semester in historic Dublin, Ireland, as they learn from Baylor faculty, build friendships, make unforgettable memories and get a life-changing, global academic experience. After the fall semester is over, they'll return home by Christmas break and continue studies in Waco, Texas, in January for the remainder of their epic college careers. 

Can you picture yourself as a Baylor Bear in Dublin? Here are some unique program benefits: 

  • Get global experience for your resume and work toward your Global Engagement Certificate on your diploma.
  • Take Baylor courses led by Baylor faculty in a historic location and stay on track for graduation. 
  • Join in Baylor traditions like Chapel, Dr Pepper Hour, and streaming football games from across the pond. 
  • Explore Ireland on two group trips.
  • Pay a similar cost to the Waco freshman experience (and all your scholarships apply)!
