Beyond the Campus

As a relief from the rigor of the classroom, many opportunities exist beyond the serenity of the campus, including excursions to destinations in Morocco and Spain, as well as being immersed in the community you'll call home.


The UNE Morocco semester program includes an exciting itinerary of trips to nearby Moroccan destinations — plus a weekend trip to Seville, Spain. Destinations may vary from semester to semester, so please check with the Global Education Program office for the latest programming.

Write about your amazing experiences and submit them for publication at our magazine Moorish Tides. Your family, friends, and readers around the world will be impressed and grateful.


We offer a suite of courses that can meet the needs of all majors. You will enjoy a variety of engaging courses taught in English, plus Arabic language study. All courses are approved by UNE faculty and count toward the core or the major. Please check with your advisers on how best to take advantage of UNE Morocco and make sure to plan ahead.

*Courses with fewer than five students will not enroll.


Program costs include classes, accommodations, meals, and an itinerary of group excursions. Students are required to arrange their own flights.

UNE Students

UNE students keep all UNE scholarships and financial aid and are billed the same tuition as for a traditional on-campus semester, plus standard UNE study abroad room and board rate.


Students participating in a UNE semester abroad program will be automatically awarded a $500 Global Education Scholarship. Students may also apply for the Downs Family Travel Scholarship. This scholarship was established by Mrs. Eva M. Downs, whose late husband, Jacques M. Downs, was a much-loved history professor at UNE. The Downs family are champions of global education and UNE’s campus in Morocco. The scholarship was established to provide support for students who might not otherwise be able or inclined to participate in a semester abroad at the UNE Tangier Campus or other UNE semester-abroad programs. 

  • Deadline for Fall semester abroad programs: April 1
  • Deadline for Spring semester abroad programs: November 1

Other outside scholarships may be available; visit the scholarship opportunities listing or contact the Global Education team for more details.

Students from Other Universities

Non-UNE students pay UNE undergraduate semester tuition, general service fee, plus standard UNE study abroad room and board rate. See Student Financial Services for current cost.

The Student Financial Services cost breakdown is for a full academic year. Divide by two for a single semester cost.
