Student Travel Programs
After this Morocco program I feel that in order to truly understand any culture one must experience it first hand.Katie Kollar, New York University student
Our partner Morocco Exchange brings American, European and Moroccan students together on travel programs in Morocco, building bridges of genuine human connection between the Muslim and Western worlds by encouraging self development and the widening of participants’ perspectives through experiential learning activities.
The 4-21 day programs provide students with opportunities to
- experience Islamic art, thought, and daily life, through visits, lectures and home-stays
- discover Moroccan culture and history through academic discussions and presentations with professors from Casablanca, Fez, Ifrane, Marrakech, or Rabat
- get firsthand experience of international aid projects, witnessing their impact on local communities
- gain inspiration for future career and volunteer choices. Vibrant examples are provided by our program leaders through their years of service as former Peace Corps volunteers
We also offer customized academic programs according to your interests and needs. Please get in touch with us. View Program Details
Morocco Exchange is a UK non-profit organization which was initiated by Crossing Borders Education as a creative response to the political situation in a post 9/11 world. Since 2003, it has organised over 650 programs and introduced nearly 9,000 American and European university students and faculty to the Moroccan people and culture.
Morocco Exchange works in collaboration with the Langcom Institute, the Asociación de Programas Universitarios Norteamericanos en España (APUNE), the University Hassan II in Rabat, the Moroccan Association of Teachers of English (MATE), the Dutch Institute for higher education in Morocco (NIMAR), the Ecole Superieure Roi Fahd de Traduction Tangier, and with NGOs such as the DARNA women’s center in Tanger, the Masal youth project in Salé, and the World Women’s Banking (WWB).
