RIT is a global university based in Rochester, NY which also has students and faculty at its international campuses around the world. It is RIT’s mission to educate students to be successful in a global society, develop an awareness of the world around them as well as an understanding of cross-cultural issues. To accomplish this mission, RIT operates in five different countries and currently offers study abroad programs in Croatia, Dubai and Kosovo.
In collaboration with its international campuses, RIT has developed specialized programs for students to travel and study during the academic year and in the summer. Students, those currently studying at RIT as well as those studying at other institutions around the world, can now travel, study and become a more involved member of today’s global society.

All programs are delivered in English which sets the stage for a truly global experience with no barriers to communication. Students from all of RIT’s campuses are encouraged to study-abroad within its global network.

Current Study Abroad Programs at RIT Dubai
"Having never really traveled outside the U.S., I was nervous to venture to Dubai. I heard so many mixed reactions about U.A.E. However, the transition was very easy as the culture was so welcoming. People back home were amazed to hear about my once in a lifetime experience."
