Take your studies on a journey

At PLNU, we believe it is essential for our students to have a purposeful experience abroad that integrates academic, faith, career, and personal development. Studying abroad is an educational experience that will prepare you to live and work as an informed citizen in a globally connected world. As you take this journey to becoming a global citizen, you will have the opportunity to recognize the significance of the multilingual, multicultural, and ethnic influences at home and abroad.

We help students participate in incredible programs in every region of the world, with new locations and programs offered every year. PLNU students have studied in more than 50 different countries and on every continent.


No matter your major or where you want to go, we can help you find the perfect program.
