Are you planning to go abroad?

You have countless options at Notre Dame! The world is the limit . . .

Notre Dame programs offer diverse international opportunities. Your experience will depend on your own interests and creativity. Think globally!

Join internationally-minded students to find out about funded internships, research and language grants, service learning, study abroad and more! Explore the possibilities in Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Connect with students who have already been abroad, and let their experiences challenge you!


Have you recently been abroad?

What now? How will you carry this experience into your future?

Wondering how you might incorporate what you have learned into the local community?

Thinking about further international research? Graduate school? What about career choices?

Take advantage of opportunities at Notre Dame to guide you and enhance your eligibility for post-graduate careers, fellowships and graduate studies. Consider how you might stay involved in the community where you worked or do similar work in the local community. Take classes to deepen your understanding of international issues. Go abroad again through grants. Present your work at academic conferences. Share your experiences with local elementary, intermediate and high schools. Come find out how! Network with other students who have had international experiences, and inspire students who have not yet gone abroad.
