The Office for International Programs works with carefully-screened study abroad providers to allow Loyola University Chicago students to choose from a variety locations around the globe. Global Partners are either another Jesuit University in the U.S. who has a campus abroad, similar to our Rome Center or an approved third party provider. Providers are non-profit organizations who work with universities across the U.S. to co-sponsor quality study abroad programs for students. Students can apply to the program that best matches their academic and geographic preferences, studying alongside U.S., local, or international students. Academic environments can range from providers’ centers, to direct enrollment in local universities, or both.
