For Students

Thank you for your interest in Global Student Opportunities at Jefferson!
Studying abroad or away in the US is a unique opportunity for students who want to step outside their normal academic routine and explore what the rest of the world has to offer.  It is a chance to explore your professional field through the perspective of another culture, to become more globally aware, and have life-changing adventures.  We are excited to work with you to achieve these goals and have the best international experience possible!

For Center City students, you can go here to learn about your opportunities for Global Engagement.

For East Falls Students: Some more about the Study Away Program and its application processes

If you are just starting to think about studying abroad and want to learn more about how to begin planning and the application process, please read through our Step by Step Guide to Study Away, attend a Study Away Information Session, and discuss your academic plan with your advisor.  This should help you get started and keep you on track to complete all of the necessary requirements for study away.  You are also encouraged to browse through the other links on our website for more detailed information about our Jefferson Rome Semester, Costa Rica Experience, National Student Exchange, other semester and faculty-led programs, finances and scholarships, scheduling an appointment with our office, etc. We also have pages for parents and family members!

IMPORTANT: You must apply through the Jefferson - East Falls Study Away Office and our campus's approved programs. If you are interested in programs that are not listed on our website, please schedule an appointment. Do not apply directly to external programs without informing the Study Away office or your academic program.

If at any point you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.  Students are welcome to call, email or stop by our office any time! During the academic year we host virtual and in person info sessions and advising appointments.
