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.
