Read Our Blog!


Are you interested in going abroad but not sure what the experience will be like? Do you wish you could hear what previous students experienced and advice they have for you? You are in luck! Tufts students who are currently abroad, or recently returned from abroad want to share their stories with you. From academics, to cultural adjustment, to learning a new language, the Tufts Programs Abroad Blog is here to help you prepare for your time abroad and provide recommendations.

We will  also use the blog to keep you up to date on campus events, resident director and program visits, and mandatory meetings. Some of our articles will describe the resources available to you while abroad and provide you with support for the logistical aspects of preparation.
