Welcome to Study Abroad


Virtual 1-on-1 Meetings

During this time, the Study Abroad Office wants RIC students to understand that planning to study abroad in the future is still a possibility. Studying abroad is a process that we recommend planning for close to a year in advanced for before you actually leave. While the future is uncertain, RIC students that had their hopes set on studying abroad are encouraged to plan one on one zoom meetings with the Director to begin discussing or continue discussing the possibilities of studying abroad in the Fall of 2020, Spring of 2021, Summer of 2021 or beyond. While nothing will be set in stone in this uncertainty, planning ahead will help tremendously if you had your hopes set on studying abroad during your stay at Rhode Island College."
