Global Opportunities

Our Global Education Program makes it easy for you to gain valuable international experiences. Our program offers English-language courses in the sciences, humanities, business and the arts, as well as language study in Arabic, Spanish, and French.

Study Abroad

Our faculty-led travel courses are an exciting, enriching way to study abroad. We offer programs at the undergraduate level to many destinations, including Belize, Costa Rica, Cuba, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, and Panama. At the graduate level, students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy and Masters of Occupational Therapy programs can study abroad in Egypt, Guatemala, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, and Morocco.

As an undergraduate, you can spend a semester at UNE’s campus in Tangier, Morocco; or at partner universities in Seville, Spain; Aix-en-Provence, France; or Akureyri or Reykjavik, Iceland for the same cost as studying in Maine. As a graduate student, you have opportunities for short-term study abroad, such as healthcare immersions in Ghana, summer exchanges for pharmacy students at the University of Granada in Spain, and physical therapy rotations at a clinic in Belize.
