At Rice, we are committed to educating global citizens who act to leave their imprint on the world. Through studying abroad, our students immerse themselves in another culture for a summer, a semester or a year, and learn to see the world in new ways. These opportunities encompass every Rice academic major and field of study through programs in nearly 70 countries.
Study Abroad Office is diligent in providing high quality academic-based educational programs in collaboration with prestigious international universities and select program providers. Rice students have access to study at top universities throughout the world including Oxford University, London School of Economics, University of Cambridge, National University of Singapore, Sciences Po in Paris and many others. Students can gain once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to study abroad in areas such as ecology and resource management in Tanzania, mathematics in Russia, Asian studies in China, engineering in Turkey or art restoration in Italy.
Every student at Rice may participate in study abroad programs, and the Study Abroad Office works with them to develop an experience that matches their academic and personal needs. To learn more about how Rice students turn a study abroad dream into a reality, watch the Study Abroad Office's
