In 2001-02, 611 Purdue students participated in an approved program of study abroad, half of which participated in Purdue faculty-led programs. The number of Purdue students studying abroad has been increasing from only 151 students a decade ago, to 248 students five years ago, to our present number of 611.

Purdue offers students within all fields of study the opportunity to participate in international study programs now in 46 countries. In most programs, students earn Purdue credit for courses completed. Although the academic experience is rigorous, programs allow extensive contact with the local cultures.

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.

The Office of Programs for Study Abroad and the Office of International Programs are working with departments and schools to develop new program possibilities to involve even more students and faculty.
