Study Abroad

Study abroad is an increasingly important part of the college experience.

Exploring new cultures can be life-changing, and many students point to their time abroad as the defining aspect of their education.

EF College Study Tours and Explorica faculty-led international education programs offer a great alternative to the traditional study abroad experience.  Competitively priced, all-inclusive and completely customizable, these tours give you the flexibility to take your coursework around the globe in just one to four weeks.
