UNE Tangier, Morocco

A Campus for Semesters Abroad and Global Connections

Students from UNE and other colleges are invited to spend a semester abroad at the University of New England’s campus in Tangier, Morocco. UNE is the only U.S. university to own a study abroad campus specially designed for the needs of health sciences majors, as well as students in a variety of other programs. The campus features state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, and residences in the heart of Tangier — a dazzling cultural crossroads by the sea.

UNE Morocco is an educational and cultural initiative created to foster international understanding. The campus serves as a global education site from which to explore the history, beauty and diversity of Morocco, and as a community resource for Tangier residents. By hosting theatrical and musical performances, public speaking events and celebrations, UNE Morocco builds connections between citizens of the U.S., Morocco, Europe and beyond.
