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.

Our beautiful campus features state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, 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.


You may participate in faculty-led travel courses. These include a semester of academic and practical preparation on a focused topic, followed by a global trip that brings class learning to life.

The ability to do research as an undergrad was really important to me. From the start, professors are totally open to bringing on first-year students.

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.
