Tufts University has been offering study abroad
programs for four decades, and at present offers its own
programs for juniors and seniors to study in
Tübingen, Germany. Students may also choose
from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts
Students who wish to study abroad should begin planning
early in their academic careers in order to meet the
various course and language prerequisites. Majors in all departments are
encouraged to consider study abroad.
Applications for Tufts Programs Abroad for year 2014-15, fall 2014, and spring 2015
are now officially closed. Please inquire with our office if a late application might be accommodated.
Where do I begin?
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.
