Summer is the perfect time to take an intellectual and cultural journey. Experience life within a global community and learn from a Penn faculty member. Penn Summer Abroad offers you the opportunity to:

  • Study with an academic leader and subject matter expert
  • Live abroad for a span of weeks, rather than a semester
  • Explore what excites you, alongside other undergraduates
  • Dig deeper into a locale's landscape and culture
  • Expose yourself to new ideas and ways of living

Whether it's exploring the commitment to sustainability in the Netherlands and Germany, studying Latin American art in Cuba or immersing yourself in the language and culture of Argentina, France or Spain, Penn's professors inspire you with their intellectual prowess and their passion for the places you discover together.

Penn Summer Abroad is appropriate for:

  • Penn undergraduate students
  • Domestic undergraduate students studying at an accredited college or university
  • International undergraduate students studying at an accredited college or university

When successfully completed, Penn Summer Abroad provides college credit, one to two course units (c.u.)*, for the successful completion of the program and accompanying assignments.

*Academic credit is defined by the University of Pennsylvania as a course unit (c.u.). A course unit (c.u.) is a general measure of academic work over a period of time, typically a term (semester or summer). A c.u. (or a fraction of a c.u.) represents different types of academic work across different types of academic programs and is the basic unit of progress toward a degree. One c.u. is usually converted to a four-semester-hour course.
