Study Abroad at NIU
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
During the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, our priority remains the health and safety of NIU study abroad students. In a March 12 update, President Lisa C. Freeman announced the cancellation of international study abroad programs through August 2020. Cancellations for fall and academic year 2020-21 programs will be assessed on a rolling basis.
Though the Study Abroad Office is closed until further notice, you can meet with our staff virtually.
Virtual Abroad Experiences
We're proud to announce summer and fall virtual abroad experiences. These internship experiences, combined with the internship course, will allow you to work with an international organization from your home base in the U.S. You'll gain a global perspective and fulfill academic requirements.
Become a global citizen! Studying abroad makes you highly desirable to employers and transforms the way you see the world. Choose a program that fits your major and schedule. Our study abroad opportunities include 80 countries and range from 10 days to full academic years. Plus, we’ll make your study abroad experience affordable through financial aid and scholarships.
