Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury In Rabat, Morocco
September 21, 2017 A Learning Experience
I learned a lot about the Moroccan culture and history. I also learned a lot about myself both as an individual and a student. It was very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Language skills, great friends, good experiences, and a lot of time alone. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
it was very hard but worthwhile. I did not learn only to speak a language or facts about a foreign country, I understood a completely different culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I gained invaluable experience living and studying in another country. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained a better knowledge of Arabic, a familiarity with an Arabic and Islamic culture, and an appreciation of Moroccan cuisine, primarily. It was all worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I feel that I learned a lot, I got to live in a foreign country on my own, I got to travel, I met a lot of different people. It was worthwhile, though I wonder if it would have been better to only do a semester instead of two since the second felt very repetitive. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My mastery of the Arabic language advanced by leaps and bounds. I also learned a great deal about Moroccan history and culture. I absolutely think the experience was worthwhile, both personally and academically. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

My Arabic improved tremendously! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned that had I prepared more thoroughly, my first month or so would have probably been easier. But I also knew that I had a learning curve and though it took awhile, once the language clicked, it really felt like I had begun to truly internalize Arabic. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

About

For thousands of years, Morocco has benefited from the cross-cultural exchange of Berber, Arab, African, and European peoples, customs, learning, and gastronomy. Today, Morocco is home to 34 million, and is one of the most stable and moderate constitutional monarchies in the Arab World.

Located 150 miles south of Morocco's northern tip, where the Bou Regreg river meets the Atlantic Ocean, Rabat is the nation’s capital, and home to just over 1 million "Maghariba" (Moroccans). By Moroccan standards, Rabat is a fairly young city, having been established in 1146. Our partner university, Mohammed V University, was founded in 1957 as the first modern university in Morocco.

This program is designed for students with proficiency in Arabic, who adhere to the Middlebury Language Pledge while they are abroad. The Pledge shows a commitment to linguistic immersion and is the key to students' successful language development and cultural integration.
