( See below detailed information )

Commencing in the Fall 2010 term through to Spring 2013, PSU provided 2nd-3rd year University students with the opportunity to study abroad via its PSU Year Abroad (PYA) Program. Starting in Spring 2014, the program changed into the PSU Semester Abroad (PSA) Program. Similar to the PYA, there is a formal application process and set of requirements to be met in order to qualify for selection. Starting in Summer 2019, PSU Summer Abroad (PSuA) was launched with opportunities for PSU to take one 3-4 week intensive course listed on the 2020 PSuA list. In October 2021 a select number of PYA opportunities will be announced.

The PSA, PYA and PSuA provide the opportunities to enrich a discrete number of PSU's best students' educational experiences via studying overseas at one of PSU's partner universities. Studying abroad opens minds to new experiences, tempers character with challenges and leads to new friendships. How well the PSU students perform abroad also enables the University to get a sense of its coordinates en route to providing the Middle East with quality education up to the highest international standards. Simply put, the studying abroad benefits both students and the university.
