COVID-19 Update: With a few exceptions*, fall 2021 study abroad at Tufts will be moving forward! For China-based students who met challenges obtaining their student visa to come to the U.S. in fall 2021, we are offering the Tufts@BNU program once more. Please read more about the program details. (*Tufts in Beijing, Tufts in Chile, Tufts in Ghana, and Tufts in Japan have all been suspended for fall 2021.)

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"! Once you have taken care of that critical step in your planning, you can then register your intent to study abroad.
