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.

Thrilling Travels

by Aleezeh

As many things are involving study abroad, the concept of a fall break was entirely foreign to me before this trip. For weeks people in the program were buzzing with ideas about where to go for break. Many were concerned about resetting their Moroccan visas and opted to travel towards Europe. I was one of them.

by Aleezeh

I have been in Morocco for over a month now. As life here begins to feel more and more normal, it also doesn’t.

Every day I walk home through the Medina, and every day I see something I never noticed before. I wonder if the stalls and landmarks are constantly changing or if some of these new items get lost within the chaos. I get lost too.

A trailer of my upcoming experiences in Morocco
