About Loop Abroad

Loop Abroad offers accredited pre-veterinary study abroad and summer travel programs around the world. We focus on animal welfare and authentic, amazing animal adventures.
Loop Abroad is a student travel organization that began with a singular mission: provide the best hands-on study abroad for students pursuing careers working with animals.

We’ve done this by partnering with world-renowned conservationists in their efforts to protect endangered animals. While our programs and geography have expanded, we remain committed to global animal welfare. Read why we don’t ride elephants.

Our mission is to make a positive impact on animal welfare and wildlife conservation around the world by partnering with responsible, local organizations to support them in their efforts while at the same time offering our students unprecedented opportunities for hands-on learning across all programs.

Moreover, we are proud to offer a wide-range of ethical and responsible travel programs to students who share our commitment to furthering the cause for animal rights and respect for all living things.

As we pursue our mission, we strive to follow the Standards of Good Practice set out by the Forum on Education Abroad, which is recognized as the US Standards Development Organization for the field.
