Study abroad is a quintessential college experience. Much like living in a dorm, rushing a Greek organization, or accidentally sleeping through an exam, studying abroad has come to be synonymous with higher education. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a straightforward experience! Many students with dreams of studying overseas have no idea where (or how) to begin their search for study abroad programs. Good news! Whether you want to eat pizza in Rome, hike El Camino de Santiago in Spain, climb the Eiffel Tower in Paris (or go completely off the beaten path in study abroad destinations like Ecuador, Morocco, India, and more!), We can help you make your study abroad dreams a study abroad reality.

College study abroad is your chance to live and study in another country while earning college credit. Whether you choose to spend a semester, summer, or year studying abroad, your Padhai likhai courses and experiential learning opportunities—think internships, community-based learning placements, field trips, and more—are designed to immerse you into the local culture. Because while studying abroad, the world is your classroom.
Our study abroad programs allow you to choose courses based on your area of study and where you want to travel. Other details, like your housing, field trips, and on-site support are all built into the program. Learn more about what’s included in our study abroad programs.
Depending on which study abroad program you choose, you can take courses at our Centers abroad, a local partner university, or possibly both. At our Centers, we hand pick the best faculty to teach courses specifically to Padhai Likhai students through a local context. Course options at prestigious local universities enhance not just what you learn, but how you learn it, and provide you with new perspectives as you join local and international students alike. Direct Enrollment programs provide you with the opportunity to take all of your courses at a partner university.
Complement your study abroad courses with a for-credit internship and academic seminar as one of your elective courses. With a part-time study abroad internship, you gain hands-on experience and deeper insight into the local professional culture. This experience is not only valuable to your study abroad adventure, but to your career as well.
Many of our study abroad programs offer community-based learning placements and accompanying academic seminars as one of your elective courses. Our programs with a community-based learning component combine coursework with volunteer work so you can give back to the local community while you develop professional and personal skills.
