For over 50 years, the University of Portland has offered opportunities for students to explore their world and immerse themselves in new cultures and experiences through academic programs abroad. Students at UP have the opportunity to participate in programs that touch all corners of the globe – from the old-world streets of London to the rugged beauty of Australia, from the pastoral charm of Spain to the bustling metropolis of Tokyo.
The University’s study abroad programs are carefully designed to complement students’ major areas of study, but pursuing education in a foreign country is more than just an academic opportunity. Foreign study offers students a chance to immerse themselves in a new culture, make new lifelong friends and explore new personal, global and spiritual vistas. There is reason it is called “study abroad” – these unique opportunities broaden students’ minds and expand their horizons.
