Study Abroad with Tulane University
Tulane University is known for having some of the most well-traveled students both in terms of international students studying at the New Orleans campus and U.S. students who travel abroad.

Ways to Study Abroad with Tulane
Tulane further lets students personalize their study abroad experience with program options that include:
Direct Enrollment: Enrolling directly into a foreign university can be an exciting opportunity for students who are ready to take on a truly independent experience. With this type of study abroad, students will have an immersive experience as they live and study much the same way a local student would. These programs will also offer the greatest variety of courses of study.
Cohort/Island Enrollment: Students who enroll in a Cohort program will study in their country of choice but live in separate housing overseen by professionals dedicated to helping students studying abroad. While the areas of study may be more limited in a Cohort program, it can be considerably more accessible for students who are studying in a country where they do not speak the language and/or there are not many English speakers.
Hybrid Enrollment: Hybrid enrollment allows students to choose courses of study that are in both Cohort and Direct enrollment programs. This is a good option for students who are proficient in their host country’s language but would like the support of a Cohort program.
Who Qualifies for Study Abroad?
Qualifications for study abroad programs will vary depending on the program, host country and other factors. One consistent qualification is that students must be proficient in the host country’s language for both Direct Enrollment and Hybrid Enrollment. Similarly, students should be in good academic standing for all programs.
