Rabat - Study in Rabat

Program Overview

Rabat

As you walk the boulevards of Rabat, it's hard not to be enchanted by the mystery and tradition of this timeless city. From the bustling souqs and energizing atmosphere of the city to the serenity of the surrounding mountains and sea, Rabat is an ideal place to learn about the languages, cultures, and religions of North Africa and the Arab world.

Delve into the fascinating layers of this North African nation as you learn Modern Standard Arabic with courses at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Learn Colloquial Moroccan Arabic to communicate with local Moroccans, and if you have already taken advanced French, you can take French-taught area studies courses at the IES Abroad Center or local universities. Our area studies courses focus on North African and Islamic Studies and introduce you to the many influential forces shaping the history and culture of Morocco.

Why Rabat?

Chances are you're craving a new way of learning—a new way of seeing the world. Consider studying somewhere exotic, somewhere with a melting pot of cultures and influences; somewhere that's located close to ancient ruins, the beach and the mountains; somewhere with a rich history, but definitely a modern flair, too. You can have all of this and so much more when you study abroad in Rabat.
