Where do I begin?

Tufts Students
Step one: Attend one session of the mandatory General Information Meeting, held twice weekly throughout the academic year, which outlines the process of studying abroad for a semester or year of your Tufts career.
Step two: Familiarize yourself with the policies and procedures for studying abroad at Tufts, using the links above, and then research approved programs (links below), making note of application timelines (February 1 of your sophomore year if you plan to participate in a Tufts Program Abroad; non-Tufts programs' application deadlines vary, but they are generally during the semester prior to when you plan to go abroad).

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding study abroad for Tufts students may also be helpful to you in your planning.

You may read evaluations of programs that have been submitted by Tufts students by visiting (please note that this site hosts evaluations for a variety of programs, some of which are not approved by Tufts).
Step three: Discuss your study abroad plans with your major advisor and begin the application process.
