More than 60 percent of Loyola students participate in the university's extensive study abroad program. Loyola sponsors study abroad opportunities in 13 countries, and participates in exchange programs with eight. Loyola also assists students in applying to a variety of non-Loyola-affiliated international study programs each year.
Most students go abroad in their junior year, usually for a single semester, although summer and holiday study tours may also be available. There are study abroad programs and exchanges taught in English, total immersion programs taught in the native language, or combinations of the two. Loyola has developed study abroad programs 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.
