Penn Abroad serves as the hub for student global opportunities at the University of Pennsylvania. Each year the University sends over 2,500 Penn students to more than 50 countries around the world on semester study abroad, summer internships, service learning, and short-term programs. Getting a glimpse of the student experience and connecting with those that have gone abroad on our programs is a great way to learn more.

We invite you to connect with recent incoming exchange students or Penn Abroad returnees who have gone abroad in the same location, internship placement, or institution you are interested in. We are currently adjusting the list and updating student profiles, look out for more through the summer:
