Boldly Engage a Beautiful World

The fact that you’re visiting this site means you are among the adventurous, the hopeful, the bold. It means you’re among the 300,000+ American students who study abroad each year. And it means you’re among the much smaller pool of American Christians who study abroad each year. Yet, within those smaller numbers lies tremendous potential for the Kingdom.

It’s students like you whom God is inviting to step into his global mission in remarkable ways. And InterVarsity Study Abroad is here to help.



How Can You Study Abroad on Mission?

Find Christian Community in the IFES

You have spiritual brothers and sisters waiting to meet you in 150+ countries in the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). Each country's student ministry is different, but you'll often find small group Bible studies, large group meetings, outreach events, and getaways. Find the IFES group in your host country >>

Be Encouraged & Equipped in Europe

If God has called you to a semester or year in Europe, there are a variety of ways you can get involved. For starters, check out our weekend retreats and spring break trips >>

Pursue Justice & Earn Credit

You can be part of the generation that owns and ends poverty by participating in a semester abroad unlike the rest. Consider spending your semester abroad engaging issues of racial reconciliation in Rwanda or human trafficking in Thailand. Learn about our For-Credit Programs >>

Join a Digital Small Group

No matter where you study abroad, you can join a small group with other InterVarsity students overseas who meet over video chat. This group can become an anchor to encourage your growth and partnership with God’s mission during your time overseas. Though miles apart, you'll grow together. Find out more >>

InterVarsity Study Abroad is here to walk alongside you through what we hope will be one of the most spiritually rich times in your college career.
