Study Abroad Opportunities
Regent's University London
Regent's University London is one of the UK's most respected independent universities, and one of the most internationally diverse, with students from more than 140 different countries worldwide. Situated in the heart of Regent’s Park in central London, the main quadrangle of classrooms is surrounded by residence halls, lawns, and tennis courts. Beyond this are the gardens and lakes of the beautiful Royal Park. This peaceful environment is only a few minutes away from the financial center of London, the West End, and the many attractions of this exciting European city. By means of the European rail system and low-cost airfare, many beautiful and historical European cities can be explored on weekends.

AUR’s urban campus is located on top of the Janiculum, Rome’s highest hill, in a dedicated set of buildings in a prestigious neighborhood, within walking distance of the center of “the Eternal City.”

Occasional trips to Europe are arranged by Point Park University faculty, in which students can participate for University credit. These trips are typically offered as three-credit courses, with the travel usually occurring over the summer. In the past, destinations have included Greece, Hungary, England, Scotland, France, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and the Czech Republic.
In addition, other schools and study abroad organizations sponsor programs such as Semester at Sea. Students are responsible for researching options and working with the program directly to meet all deadlines, requirements, and financial obligations. Students are also responsible for meeting Point Park requirements. The Office of Student Affairs has a limited amount of other program information available, and students are welcome to visit the office to browse at their leisure.
