Students Abroad in SpainFor the sixth consecutive year, Arcadia University is ranked first in the U.S. in study abroad participation, according to the Institute of International Education’s Open Doors report. Arcadia earned the recognition based on the percentage of undergraduate students participating in a study abroad experience at a master’s level college or university, as determined by the Institute of International Education (IIE), with support from the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Arcadia University has been a leader in international education for nearly 70 years, since then-Beaver College first began sending students to study in post-war Europe. That legacy continues to be part of the Arcadia ethos. Approximately 74 percent of Arcadia undergraduates study abroad.

“We are delighted at this news from IIE and the hard work that this award demonstrates on the part of our entire community at Arcadia University,” said Lorna Stern, vice president of Arcadia University and executive director of The College of Global Studies. “As our campus seeks to embrace diversity in all its forms, it is encouraging to confirm that our students and faculty endorse our institutional commitment to globally located learning and engagement with difference.”
