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?

EMB Students Spend 16 Days Filming Documentaries in South Africa

"Eleven NKU students who enrolled in EMB 495/COM 594 for the 2014 spring semester literally have a long way to go before they complete the course.

Earlier this week, they traveled more than 8,000 miles to Port Elizabeth, South Africa, where they’ll spend 16 days filming documentaries in different parts of that country. While they’re there, the students will be posting video clips, photos and notes on the class blogsite."
