Loyola University Chicago

Study Abroad

First Steps

Step 1

Choose your Destination

With 100+ programs in 55 countries, you have a world of choices. See our full list of semester/full year and summer & J-Term programs and check out our map of countries where you can study abroad.

Don't forget about Loyola's Global Centers and Faculty Led-Programs:

Step 2

Pick your Program

No two programs are exactly alike—even in the same country. You might find yourself on an American-style campus taking courses in English or living with a host family while taking classes at a local university. Make sure you check out the differences between various programs, especially with regards to cost, financial aid transfer, and courses.
