SRAS partners with The London School in its offerings for study abroad in Bishkek. The London School campus is in the very heart of the city, near cafes and shopping. Most students live within walking distance of campus or in homestays. Specific housing information will be listed on each program page.
Bishkek is a green, laid-back city. Most students are able to quickly build a support group, interacting with other international students and Russian-speaking peers at London School. Public transportation, while crowded, can get you to the city’s attraction or outside the city to hiking trails and other outdoor activities.
SRAS maintains this Guide to Living in Bishkek to help you find the resources you’ll need on the ground to live a summer, semester, or year abroad. And, if you ever need help with anything while abroad on one of programs, your onsite coordinator will be there to help.

At Stetson, we’ve used SRAS to arrange all of our student study abroad trips for the past five or six years. During that time we’ve sent dozens of students on summer- and semester-long programs in Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Irkutsk. In every interaction I’ve had with them, SRAS has been prompt, reliable, knowledgable, courteous and quick to lend a hand when needed.

Just yesterday my student successfully defended her honors thesis on environmentalism around Lake Baikal, a project that would not have been possible without the fieldwork that she conducted on her SRAS study abroad program in Irkutsk. I hope to see more such projects in the future and will keep directing students to SRAS programs!
