Research Abroad

Take your undergraduate research abroad. Undertaking research abroad is one of the many ways in which Penn supports students to engage globally.

You may be interested in working with certain experts in the field, or at a location that fits your own field research, with a number of resources made available to students to support in their global research quest. Research can be undertaken as part of a semester abroad experience or over the summer, based on the individual needs of the student.
