Study Abroad

Are you ready to go further, dream bigger, and experience a new culture? Join us at one of our Notre Dame Global Gateways in Italy, Ireland, or at our newest destination in South Africa! Dig into the architectural history of Rome, with all its fountains, ruins, winding streets, and delicious gelato. Or do you gravitate more toward the Emerald Isle, which boasts both the bustling city of Dublin and the castles and sweeping views of the west as we explore the divide between traditions and modernity? Our exciting adventure in South Africa will allow you to confront the turbulent history of the Nation, while also taking in the incredible landscape of canyons, mountains, falls, and wildlife. 

Whatever your preference, our study abroad programs offer you a unique opportunity to travel the world, explore a new culture under the guidance of Notre Dame faculty, and make memories that last a lifetime.
