LIU Global and SYP offer a full range of advising and support services, focusing on such issues as program selection, academic planning, registration, credit transfer, cultural adjustment, passport/visa procedures, on-site support and re-entry.  LIU Brooklyn students are only required to take the foreign language and area studies courses at the Costa Rica, India and China Centers.  The balance of their coursework is composed of elective courses, internships and independent study allowing students to focus on International Relations, Foreign Language, the Arts, Environmental Sciences, Writing, Literature and more!  LIU Brooklyn students participating in the Australia, Comparative Religion & Culture and Global Issues in South America Programs must enroll in all courses offered for that program during the semester of study due to the demands of those programs due to frequent movement in the countries of study.


Students receive academic credit for enrolled courses and can apply most, if not all, of their financial aid towards the program costs as if attending LIU Brooklyn.  Program costs include tuition and university fees, which are standard at the LIU Brooklyn Campus however additional LIU Global costs include Room/Board, Center and International Health Insurance Fees which vary depending on the center/program and are billed as well as International Flights and Personal Expenses which are out of pocket.  These also vary depending on the center/program.  Additionally, LIU Brooklyn students are able to apply for the President Steinberg Scholarship which awards $20, 000 to an LIU Brooklyn student to study abroad.

Both LIU Brooklyn and External Scholarships are available.  Please contact for further information and connect with current students through LIU Global Social Media!
