Every year more than five hundred Tufts students study abroad for part of their undergraduate education. In addition to offering ten Tufts Programs Abroad, Tufts also permits students to take a study-abroad leave of absence from the university in order to participate in pre-approved “non-Tufts” programs administered by foreign institutions, other U.S. colleges and universities, and study-abroad provider organizations.
