It’s your world.
We like to think our small and intimate campus spans seven continents. Five of every eight Wake Forest graduates study abroad at some point, and the vast majority of them receive academic credit in the process. We are also committed to keeping our relationship with the world a two-way street by actively recruiting the best and brightest international students to campus.
Wake Forest offers a first-year abroad experience in Copenhagen, Denmark. Out students engage in challenging coursework led by Wake Forest and Danish faculty members through hands-on learning opportunities along with expert guest lectures and faculty-led study tours across Europe
Our homes away from home.
Wake Forest owns and operates three residences where students live and study with Wake Forest faculty: Casa Artom in Venice, the Flow House in Vienna, and the Worrell House in London. Ours is the only Top 30 National University to own three residential-academic houses abroad.
Vienna | Flow House
The University’s campus in Vienna used to be a diplomatic mission. It’s 2 miles from the Danube and 2 miles from where Beethoven briefly lived and drew inspiration for his Third Symphony.
Venice | Casa Artom
Except for a time in the 1820s, a structure of some sort has stood on the site of Casa Artom since at least 1311. Located on the Grand Canal, the land was home to a palace, a lumberyard, a wine warehouse and the American consulate (1952-63) before Wake Forest conducted its first classes in 1971.
London | Worrell House
Worrell House is in the same neighborhood as the creators of James Bond (Ian Fleming); Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne); The Office (Ricky Gervais); and psychoanalysis (Sigmund Freud).
