More than 60 percent of Loyola students participate in the university's extensive study abroad program. Loyola sponsors study abroad opportunities in over 20 countries and also assists students in applying to a variety of external opportunities each year.
Most students go abroad in their junior year, usually for a single semester, although full-year, summer and holiday study tours may also be available. There are study abroad programs taught in English, total immersion programs taught in the native language, or combinations of the two. Loyola has developed study abroad opportunities to accommodate all majors, but you should begin planning for your international study experience as soon as possible, especially if you plan to major in business, math, or science.
Loyola continues to monitor the COVID-19 coronavirus situation very closely with the recommendations of the Department of State, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the advice and information we receive from our colleagues and host universities abroad. The University is in touch with students studying abroad and their families to ensure they have the most updated information. Please visit the Coronavirus Updates page for the University's latest updates.
