At Penn State, we have hundreds of ways you can study abroad, either for a semester or a full academic year.

If you want to study abroad for only a summer, a winter, or spring break, this program is for you. You can earn three credits while you’re abroad for one to three weeks, and you won’t lose any class time. These programs focus on experiential learning, either through field study or lab research.
Fully immerse yourself in your research interests through another university’s program for education abroad. You have several options for achieving this, so you can study select courses at other institutions around the world.
Don’t let finances keep you from an international experience that will enable you to grow immensely. We have travel grants, as well as scholarships and student aid options, to help make studying abroad a reality for you.
