University profile
For many years, the Bryn Mawr College has welcomed students from overseas. In 2009, the College enrolled a class in which 21% of the students are nationals of countries other than the United States, hold dual citizenship, or are U.S. citizens living abroad. Some Reasons to Consider Bryn Mawr College:
• Bryn Mawr enjoys a proud legacy of success in women's higher education. The College is one of the prestigious "Seven Sisters," which were founded in the 1800's as "sister" schools to Ivy League Colleges.
• The Wall Street Journal lists Bryn Mawr as one of the top ten feeder schools to top law, medical and business schools in the United States.
• The campus is located in a quiet suburban area outside of Philadelphia, and may be reached within 20 minutes via the regional rail system.
• Special relationships with Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges create social as well as academic opportunities.

Scholarship information ------
Dormitory information Students are housed in the college dormitories with other undergraduates. Off-campus housing is not available. Students live in college dormitories with other undergraduates. This housing option might be a challenge for some students. Exchange students should be advised to consider the residential community housing carefully before they decide to come to Bryn Mawr. Also, Exchange students enroll in the College meal plan as part of the residential life experience. Students do not prepare their own meals in the dorms.
Other information Exchange students are required to enroll in a Balch Seminar in the fall. It is actually a flagship English course required of all fall student entrants at Bryn Mawr. It prepares students for the liberal arts experience at Bryn Mawr, because it is designed to foster a close faculty student relationship that allows students to build a scholarly rapport with faculty for academic mentoring. It also allows all our students to further develop the critical thinking, analytical, and scholarly writing and reading skills that are the hallmarks of the Bryn Mawr liberal arts curriculum.
