Programs and Locations
Loyola University Chicago invites students to study abroad at one of our Global Centers in Rome, Beijing, and Vietnam. These international campuses offer courses in multiple disciplines taught by Loyola and international faculty members. Semester, summer, and academic year long programs are available. All Loyola, federal, and state aid can be applied toward the program and tuition costs.
The Office for International Programs works with carefully-screened study abroad providers to allow Loyola University Chicago students to choose from a variety locations around the globe. Students can apply to the program that best matches their academic and geographic preferences, studying alongside U.S., local, or international students. Academic environments can range from providers’ centers, to direct enrollment in local universities, or both. All federal, and state aid can be applied toward the program and tuition costs, except for Fordham, El Salvador, and Philipines programs (where all aid transfers).

They focus on a specific topic or foreign language and vary in length from 2–4 weeks. 3–6 credits are typically awarded for these programs. Students study in English or the local language with other Loyola students.
