Rabat

Morocco

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.

Fez & Furnaces

by Katya

In chambers underneath the ancient city of Fez, men sit tending the flames of furnaces. The rooms are cavernous but half-filled with sawdust, like great sand dunes; the men perch on them, stirring the embers.

Notes from the Sahara

by Katya

In Morocco, the big dipper is upside-down. Like it might spill soup all over the night sky. I've been here now for three months, but occasionally, I notice new differences like that—quiet, sudden reminders that I am far from home. It slips my mind, sometimes.

How to Think in Five Languages at Once

by Katya
