With over 300 program options to choose from, making the decision of where you’ll study abroad is not an easy one. And it’s for good reason: each program offers something unique–different, languages, and cultures, and places around the globe.

International students seeking to obtain F-1 visas to enter the U.S. found themselves stranded as embassies and consulates worldwide closed for unknown durations. Additionally, the Presidential Proclamation establishing travel restrictions for non-immigrant travelers from Brazil, China, and Iran has been in effect since January 2020 and has not yet been suspended.
