CONNECTING UNE WITH THE WORLD

The Office of Global Affairs is responsible for all matters related to global outreach at the University of New England. We connect you with enriching study abroad opportunities through Global Education programs while overseeing UNE’s Tangier, Morocco campus and building study-abroad partnerships with other institutions around the world. Additionally, we curate forums to engage students and the public in discussions on important global issues.

Study Abroad with Global Education Programs

UNE strives to empower students in becoming global citizens, and our students study abroad at nearly five times the national average. Our global education programs make it easy for you to gain valuable international experiences.

Travel Courses

UNE's Global Education Program offers an array of short-term travel courses to destinations like Spain, Belize, Dominica, Thailand, Italy, Scotland, Panama, Ireland, Kenya, Ghana, Cuba, Mexico and Brazil. Students accepted into these programs will meet in a traditional course setting throughout the semester to prepare for travel through readings, lectures, and coursework, then travel during a semester break or over the summer.

Agreements

Image

The University of New England has made a strategic decision to develop a global outreach beyond routine faculty-led travel courses or using the services of third-party providers. We don't hold empty agreements with other universities or institutions; the agreements we have signed in Spain and Morocco involve real partnerships, such as investing in outfitting new labs, developing exchange programs in health care professions and sharing resources and faculty.
