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. The first step in planning for study abroad is to attend a "Study Abroad First Steps" meeting, which will outline your options and the policies and procedures governing study abroad at Tufts.
