RU-N Study Abroad

Rutgers University-Newark channels the global citizen in you to learn and make a difference through cultural exploration.

As a study-abroad student, service leader, and young professional, Rutgers taught me not to settle for anything less than what I know I am capable of. I realized that I could be my own boss doing something I am truly passionate about.

Across the globe, our Rutgers University-Newark students do well by doing good!

Rutgers University–Newark’s commitment to academic excellence allows students to benefit from study abroad programs that support a variety of interests and provide key experiential and service learning opportunities. We understand students are active members of the global community and seek out intentional ways to explore the world, make lasting memories, try new things, and have fun.

Our faculty designs an educational adventure that our students remember for the rest of their lives. So we encourage aspiring CEO’s, doctors, lawyers, artists, activists, scientists, and educators to maximize their undergraduate experience and take us up on this once-in-a-lifetime educational journey.
