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, Arabic, 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.

Memories of Morocco

by Katya

What my grandmother remembers best about Morocco is the moment she stepped off the ferry at the port of Tangier. I can imagine what she saw, because it’s hardly changed since the 1960s: a white city on a hill, shadowing the sea, its buildings glinting like porcelain in the sun, or the insides of oyster shells.

10 Days of Ramadan

by Katya

It was swelteringly hot the first week of Ramadan in Rabat; even sitting on the terrace at 7:14 p.m., when the sun had just dipped under the horizon, the heat was oppressive. It felt appropriate that the first heat wave of the year had swept the city as the holy month began. It left the ground as parched as the people. It also made fasting difficult.
