Welcome to the Office of Education Abroad! Our mission is to send students not on trips, but on academically rigorous, culturally immersive programs that offer the opportunity for personal growth, academic achievement, and a competitive edge in our increasingly global society. Study abroad need not be a prohibitively expensive endeavor. We aim to help students find not only affordable programs, but scholarship opportunities to help fund their study. Our office alone awards scholarships to 90% of students going abroad. With programs in places from South Africa to Northern Europe and from Central America to the Far East, students at NKU can literally go anywhere from here.

So, where in the world is your classroom?
