Study Abroad is a wonderful opportunity to explore your world, earn course credit, and build a lifetime of experiences.
The Office of Programs for Study Abroad has information, scholarships, and other resources to help. Their mission:
"The Office of Programs for Study Abroad is dedicated to internationalizing Purdue by helping as many students as possible have overseas experiences that enrich lives, enhance academic achievement and increase career potential. The study abroad staff helps students overcome academic, financial, or personal concerns that might prevent them from going abroad and they are especially devoted to removing obstacles for first-time participants."

- Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
- University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

In addition, there is a summer program for sophomores and above with a 2.5 or above GPA.
