We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about study abroad opportunities at Drexel. Whether you are a graduate student, an undergraduate student, a parent, or a Drexel colleague, we hope that you will find everything that you are looking for either at our website or by contacting our office.
Every Drexel student should give serious consideration to studying overseas. Regardless of where the Drexel degree takes you, there is no doubt that international opportunities will expand enormously over your lifetime. The experience gained through a term or several terms abroad provides students the opportunity to develop skills that can only be developed by immersing themselves in a different culture. You will have the opportunity to gain substantive understanding of another country's perspective on the world, have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of yourself, your own society, and build language skills. During study abroad, students earn Drexel credits. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Feel free to explore our website and contact us for an individual appointment.
