Visiting Students and Study Abroad

Studying abroad with St. John’s is one of the easiest decisions you’ll ever make! Here's why...

Three Countries, One Semester 

Our innovative Western Europe Semester programs take you to Italy, France, and Ireland in a single semester, with a thematic focus on Migration linking your experiences abroad!

Semester programs in Rome and Paris

If you prefer to immerse yourself in the culture of one city for the entire semester, we offer exciting semester programs in Rome and Paris with options for academic internships!

Summer programs in different countries

Want to study abroad but not for a whole semester? No problem! St. John's offers a variety of short-term programs over the summer in many different countries. 

Academics are the core of our study abroad programs. With that in mind, we offer intellectually engaging classes that are taught by St. John’s faculty and leading faculty abroad.

We aim to accommodate every student, independent of their financial resources. We offer competitive rates to students enrolled at our partner institutions, and encourage you to apply for national scholarships available as well.

We want you to expand your intellectual and personal horizons, safely. Our full-time student life and academic support staff in each of our semester locations work with you to make sure you’re able to make smart choices. And when things don’t go perfectly? You’ll have St. John’s-provided health insurance and worldwide emergency assistance – all covered by your program fee.

Community Service 
Meaningful community service is integral to a fulfilling and satisfying international experience and making the world a better place is core to the St. John’s mission.

Cultural Immersion 
Spending a semester abroad with St. John's will provide you with opportunities to start becoming a true global citizen.
