Do you offer any study abroad programs?

We have offered summer programs in Geneva, Rome, Kenya, Thailand and Uganda. However, please bear in mind that these countries and corresponding programs are subject to change.

Can foreign students apply?

Yes, international students are encouraged to apply.  International students should be proficient in the English language (please provide TOEFL scores where applicable) and will follow the same protocol as other non-Tulane students and professionals for applying to our programs.

Do I need a visa?

Country visa requirements vary significantly. Depending on the student's citizenship or permanent residency status, he or she may need to secure a visa.  This should be done well in advance of projected travel. The Payson Center is glad to share what information it has about these requirements and to provide required documentation, as necessary. However, students should keep in mind that their responsibility to understand the visa requirements that apply to them and to obtain the visa in a timely fashion.
