Global Experiences for Every Student
The mission of the Global Education Program is to foster global citizenship by providing the opportunity for all students to study abroad. Our program offers English-language courses in the sciences, humanities, business and the arts, as well as language study in Arabic, Spanish or French. Because we provide the lab science courses needed to complete many of the undergraduate programs at UNE, you can go abroad and stay on track with the requirements of your major.
Ready to go global? We're here to make it easy.

Students from UNE and elsewhere are invited to spend a semester abroad at UNE Tangier. UNE is the only U.S. university to own a study abroad site specially designed for the needs of health sciences students, and with classes for almost any major. Our beautiful campus features state-of-the-art labs and residences in the heart of one of the hottest up-and-coming study abroad destinations and new scholarships are available for most students.
You can spend a semester abroad in beautiful Seville, Spain — where the ancient meets the modern, and world cultures converge — for the same cost as a semester on campus in Maine.
New! Summer Semester at UNE Tangier
July 9 – August 21
Spend the summer in beautiful Morocco! Choose from courses, taught in English, in the lab sciences, humanities and Arabic language. You live and enjoy meals on campus, and exciting group excursions and activities are part of the program.
Fascinating Subjects and Destinations
Faculty-led short term travel courses are another way to study abroad. You meet with faculty throughout the semester to prepare for travel through readings, lectures and coursework. Then you travel to destinations in Africa, Europe, and Central and South America during a semester break or over the summer.
