Take your education beyond the classroom—and around the globe.

At Loyola University Chicago, you can extend your education globally through our renowned study abroad programs. Loyola currently offers more than 100 programs in 55 nations, so you’re sure to find the destination that’s right for you.

Studying abroad will offer you an eye-opening experience: it fosters global citizenry, a deeper understanding of issues in other countries, and friendships between students from around the world.

Loyola’s most popular study abroad destination is the John Felice Rome Center. Situated on Monte Mario, Rome’s highest hill, this residential campus is home to the oldest continual U.S. university program in Italy.

Another notable destination for Loyola undergraduate students is The Beijing Center for Chinese Studies. Established in 1998, the Center offers a premier comprehensive look at China, which includes Mandarin lessons and immersion into the Chinese way of life.

Loyola University Chicago is also the first university in the United States to offer options in Vietnam, and is opening doors to opportunities in the Middle East and Africa.

International students may wish to study abroad through Loyola's Rome Start program, which allows students to spend their freshman year studying at the Rome Center in Italy. Rome Start students then complete their degree at Loyola's Chicago campuses.
