Study Abroad with Clark University

Studying abroad/away expands credit-bearing educational opportunities beyond the Worcester campus by providing students with classroom and experiential opportunities in over 50 programs around the globe. Students begin the journey by attending a Study Abroad 101 Information Session and the fall Study Abroad Fair. Program/location-specific information is available via the drop-down below. After attending the info session and reviewing the programs, students should discuss their plans with their Faculty Advisor and a Study Abroad Advisor. Come by for Drop-In Hours, call 508-793-7363 to schedule an appointment, or email if you have questions.

We're hiring! Interested in applying for the Director of Study Abroad and Away Programs? Learn more.

Important Notices

Health Notice:

There has been some inquiry about the Zika virus that has been in the news recently. Currently no Clark-affiliated programs have issued any cancellations. Our students' health and safety are of primary concern to us, as it is to our affilated programs. For up-to-date information on the virus and other international health-related issues, please reference the US Center for Disease Control (CDC). Additional information is provided by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Program Changes:

New Clark-affiliated program for Fall 2017: Advanced Studies in England, Bath. More information coming soon.

Students interested in applying for fall should contact the study abroad office as soon as possible for application information.

The CIEE-Cape Town program has been suspended indefinitely due to ongoing student protests that have closed the local universities.

The SFS program in Turks & Caicos will no longer be offered as a Clark-affiliated program in 2017-18. For alternative programs, please make an appointment with Study Abroad staff.
