Part of being a TLU student means exploring beyond the comforts of home and familiar culture.
Each student is challenged to Learn Boldly and for many, that includes studying abroad. Grasping the intricacies of experiencing and interacting with different cultures, languages, people and places prepares students to delve into their next life adventure after graduation. TLU's study abroad program is designed to enrich lessons in and outside of the classroom and produce more understanding, empathetic and worldly individuals ready to Live to Inspire.
The purpose of the TLU International Education office is to enhance the value of the liberal arts education through national and international experiences and global education.
Our goal is to stimulate interest in international perspectives and to heighten students’ global understanding. The International Education (IE) office offers many study abroad programs and hosts international students from various countries. The IE staff is here to advise and guide students through the study abroad application process, from start to finish. We can help students choose a program and country, answer questions about the application procedure, and provide a pre-departure orientation and post-return re-orientation class.
For incoming international students, the IE staff provides an orientation to life in the United States, university procedures, and information about regulations of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office. We are also here as general support and counsel as international students get assimilated to life at TLU.
University of Evansville Harlaxton College program, one of TLU's partner programs, has been named the best study abroad program by Best College Reviews.
