Study Abroad

Global awareness is a hallmark of Jesuit education.

Exposure to diverse cultures and beliefs calls students to embrace different perspectives and experience unparalleled learning opportunities. Beyond Loyola, the world we live and work in—our global community—calls for students and graduates who have an international perspective. 

The experiences gained while learning and living abroad enrich students’ lives and differentiate them as graduates. Studying abroad influences students’ options, opportunities, and direction after graduation. Students return to Loyola having gained experience in discovering and tackling global challenges, which appeals to a range of employers and benefits any path or sector.
