Travel the World

Be immersed in different cultures, visit historic and natural sites, and become a world citizen. That’s the power of study abroad.

Study Abroad

Spend a year or semester abroad, embark on a short-term travel course, or enroll as an exchange student in one of our partner universities in Asia or Europe. Through your study abroad experiences, you can engage in meaningful cultural exchange and language learning. Develop your confidence and analytical skills. Build self-knowledge and appreciation for multiple perspectives. Pursue internship experiences that open doors to new careers. You'll return with a better understanding of the social, cultural, economic, political, and technological forces that shape today’s global society.

International Students

Our community is small enough so that people can get to know one another, yet it's big enough to provide rich opportunities. You'll engage in challenging research and study while immersing in the culture, history, and entertainment in Cambridge and nearby Boston.

Here, you’ll find students from all over the world and from right in the neighborhood. You'll become part of an international community with a New England college-town personality.

And you'll find support at every stage of your international student experience. We'll guide you through the F-1 Student Visa and admissions process. Once you're here, we'll help you connect with resources to ensure academic success and personal development.
