Study Abroad

Stamp your academic passport

Studying abroad will change your life. Learning and living in another country will boost your confidence, deepen your understanding of global cultures, and challenge you to think in new ways. Boston is amazing, but there's a whole world out there for you to discover. Explore it with Suffolk.

Where do you want to go? With Suffolk, you can study as near as Mexico, and as far away as China and Australia. We currently offer programs at more than 50 colleges and universities in 30 different countries. You can study for a semester, a summer, or an academic year. If those options don't work with your academic program, you can take a study-tour with Suffolk professors for incredible global insights.

No matter where you go and how long you go for, you'll have changed when you return to Boston. And that's a good thing.

Study Abroad Summer 2020 FAQs

As of right now, many fall programs are scheduled to run, health and safety conditions permitting. Suffolk’s partners are modifying their academic calendars so that students need not apply for visas and all have multiple contingency plans in place. At present, Suffolk’s own Madrid Campus is scheduled to open as planned on August 25.

Applications for Spring 2021 study abroad will open in late May. See your email for updates and please email the Study Abroad Office if you have any questions.

You should not book housing and flights until you have confirmation from your program or university that your semester abroad will take place in-person as planned. When you do have confirmation to make these arrangements, carefully read any contracts, particularly cancellation clauses, before signing and inquire about the refund policy of your chosen airline.


Each program is different, and you’ll need to work directly with your host institution on this issue. Again, be sure you carefully review any contract before you sign it.

We will need to withdraw your application for the current cycle, but all application records are saved in our system. Just let us know when you’d like to apply again, and we can reactivate your old application and move it to the new term.

At this time, we are planning to offer a wide variety of short-term travel opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students during the Spring 2021 semester. Please see your email for updates.
