Architecture Study Abroad
Few experiences are more crucial or influential for the development of the aspiring designer than visiting and observing places, traveling and studying abroad. For many years, the faculty of the Department of Architecture, Design & Urbanism have developed study tours that are affordable, extensive and intensive. We don’t just visit sites, we study them in depth to discover exactly what makes their design successful.
The trips generally last about two weeks and are usually scheduled for early September between the summer and fall terms. The Department also offers arrangements with other educational institutions for longer study abroad opportunities.
The destinations are chosen for the richness of their architecture, interior design and urban design, both historic and modern. Past tours have included:
- Korea, including Seoul
- Florence, Italy
- Berlin and Dessau, Germany
- Japan, with stops in Kyoto and Tokyo
- Rome, Italy
- Barcelona and Valencia, Spain
- Amsterdam, Utrecht and Rotterdam in the Netherlands
- Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, Australia
Our study tours are not vacations but life-changing experiences. You will work hard but the rewards will be immeasurable!
Drexel University offers travel scholarships to its students. Please see the Study Abroad Office Scholarship List for current opportunities.
