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 non-Tufts providers. Get started with "Study Abroad First Steps" and then come to meet with us during drop-in hours.
