Engaged Learning

Study Abroad

No matter what students' majors are, there is a study abroad program that can enrich their lives with engaged learning opportunities overseas. These programs can last anywhere from 10 days to a full academic year, and range from general studies courses, to highly focused graduate seminar courses. Study abroad programs are excellent for students who are interested in:

  • seeing the world
  • exploring their area of study in another country
  • enaging and communicating with individuals in another country
  • learning another language
  • expanding their world view
  • enhancing the value of their degree through international correspondence 
  • working with professors and instructors in other countries

NIU hosts a Study Abroad Fair annually and offers financial aid resources for students. In addition to the fair, faculty and staff may request individuals to come to class to give a study abroad presentation by filling out the Study Abroad Office's Presentation Form.
