Cost Calculators

Use our handy cost calculators to compare costs for abroad programs, and to see what you might pay abroad vs. what you would pay staying at Vanderbilt. Costs for Summer 2015 and Fall 2015 are reflected below.

To use the calculators, select the name of a program from the drop-down list. The fixed costs for the program will appear, alongside the costs for the comparable term at Vanderbilt. You can enter your estimate of meals, personal expenses, and airfare; see the notes beneath the cost table for recommendations on these variable costs from our program providers and former students.

Remember, for semester- or year-long programs, your Vanderbilt financial aid package applies to your study abroad!

Please don't make final decisions on the basis of the numbers reported by these calculators. While we try to ensure that they are accurate and up to date, there may be errors. Any errors are likely to be minor, but please let us know if you find anything that doesn't look right.
