Education Abroad

Global experiences are an increasingly important component of a student’s educational experience. RIT has a variety of ways that students can get a global experience, including studying at one of our four global campuses.

Parent Tips and Conversation Starters

It is important for you to talk with your student very early about the possibility of learning abroad. Students must carefully plan their schedules in advance to fit learning abroad into a busy course schedule and cooperative education requirements. There are opportunities for students to complete required coursework or a co-op abroad, as long as they plan ahead.


  • RIT has international campuses in China, Croatia, Dubai, and Kosovo, along with partnerships in over 60 countries.
  • Students can attend the annual study and work abroad fair to learn more about global opportunities.
  • Scholarships and aid can help fund a study abroad experience.

Conversation starters

  • If you could study abroad anywhere in the world, where would it be?
