Tufts junior Lauren Nakamura makes the most of her study-abroad experience in Denmark. Read about it here!


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 Chile, China, Ghana, Hong Kong, Japan, London, Madrid/Alcalá, Oxford, Paris, and Tübingen, Germany. Students may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts providers. 

Students who wish to study abroad should begin planning early in their academic careers (first or second year) in order to meet the various course and language prerequisites. Majors in all departments are encouraged to consider study abroad.

Where do I begin?

Tufts Students
Step one: Attend one session of the required Study Abroad First Steps meetings, held regularly throughout the academic year, which outlines the process of studying abroad for a semester or year of your Tufts career.
Step two: 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.

Step three: Discuss your study abroad plans with your major advisor and begin the application process.
