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 to undergraduate students for five decades. You may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by external providers. Get started with "Study Abroad First Steps" and then come to meet with us during drop-in hours.
