Brad Henry International Scholars Program

Rogers State University will send a student to study abroad for a semester as part of the Brad Henry International Scholars Program – RSU’s most prestigious study-at-large opportunity.

Participants will receive academic credit for completion of the program. Participants will spend either a fall or spring academic term, the dates of which approximately coincide with U.S. fall and spring academic semesters, as students at Swansea University on its campus in Swansea, Wales.

About the Program

During the study abroad experience, students will have the opportunity to travel extensively through several European countries. Swansea is a research university with 12,500 students, overlooking Swansea Bay on the Gower Peninsula in southwest Wales.

The institution is relatively new by English standards, established in 1920 when King George V laid its foundation stone. However, its first academic building, Singleton Abbey, which was donated by the city of Swansea, is a neo-Gothic mansion dating back to 1780. In 1921, the university appointed the first woman professor at a British university. More recently, the institution was given the Times Higher Education Supplement Award for the U.K.’s Best Student Experience.

The program is funded and coordinated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE) and the University of Wales, Swansea University.
