Study Abroad

There are a wide range of academic, personal, and professional benefits to be gained through studying abroad. Many students find it is a truly transformative skill-building experience. Tufts University has been offering study abroad programs for five decades. You may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts providers. Get started!

Studying Abroad fall 2017? Required pre-departure meetings have been scheduled!

Meetings will be held on May 3 and 4; they are approximately one hour in length and attendance at one meeting is required. Please check our calendar page for exact details. Students attending non-Tufts programs should attend a non-Tufts meeting; students attending Tufts programs should attend a Tufts meeting (with the exception of those who attended the group presentation during the Resident Directors' recent campus visits). 

Watch "Day By Day"

Student Accessibility Services and Tufts' Department of Film and Media Studies recently partnered with two student filmmakers, Ben Hoskings and Ray Bernoff, to produce "Day By Day," a short documentary about six Tufts students' experiences as artists living with disabilities. "Day By Day" premiered with great success in mid April, and the film will be shown at two national conferences later this summer. Congratulations to Ben and Ray, who have also entered "Day By Day" in a national contest for filmmakers with disabilities.
