You are here

Chances are you’re craving a new way of learning—a new way of seeing the world. So why not study abroad in Rabat?

With its rich mix of North African, Arabit, and European cultures, and nearly 900 years of history, there is simply no place on earth like Rabat.

When you study abroad in Rabat, you can explore the mysterious, winding streets of the Medina in the morning and visit the Museum of Contemporary Art in the afternoon. Or soak up the sun on la plage (the beach) before strolling through the Kasbah, with its unforgettable blue and white painted walls and doorways.

Our Rabat study abroad programs offer immersive courses and excursions to help you dive into the culture and develop your Arabic language skills.

When the World Knows More About the U.S. Than You

by Katya

This morning, just before noon, I was standing in front of a grad-level human resource management class, gesturing shakily at a PowerPoint presentation and talking about American culture. Forty Moroccan students blinked at me from their desks. It was bewildering.

Past, Future, Orientation

by Katya

It was a Wednesday morning, bleary and drizzling, in the center of Meknes, Morocco, a city full of orange trees (don't pick them; they taste like lemons), and we were all slouched in a classroom, learning Moroccan Arabic. Our professor had paused while explaining this particularly baffling bit of grammar.

"If you think about it," he said, after a moment (in Arabic—so I can't be held accountable for the accuracy of this), "the distance between past and future is infinitely small."
