In 2000-01, 504 Purdue students participated in an approved program of study abroad. The number of Purdue students studying abroad has been increasing each year, from only 88 students 10 years ago, to 276 students five years ago, to our present number of 504. An additional 50 students participated in an international study tour through the Office of Lifelong Learning.

Purdue offers students within all fields of study the opportunity to participate in international study programs in more than 40 countries. In most programs, students earn Purdue credit for courses completed. Although the academic experience is rigorous, programs allow extensive contact with the local culture.

Every effort is made to keep program costs as close as possible to the cost of study on the West Lafayette campus. Students eligible for financial aid may use most forms of aid on approved programs.

Students may spend a year, semester, or summer abroad. Foreign language requirements vary from none to the advanced level. Some programs are designed for students in specific areas of study, while others are open to all Purdue students regardless of major.
