Study Abroad Opportunities

Study Abroad

In today’s interconnected world, students who enter the workforce having had a strong global experience hold a significant advantage over their competition. The study abroad office at Rutgers Global helps expand students’ global education through our 180 study abroad and service-learning abroad programs. We offer financial help, scholarship options, and opportunities in every world region regardless of major, so that study abroad is an option for every Rutgers student—not just a select few.  Make an appointment with a Rutgers Global–Study Abroad adviser to help you find the right program for you.
