Meknes, one of Morocco's historic imperial cities, is home to a beautiful blend of the Arab, Amazigh, Jewish and French cultures that compose modern Morocco. The diverse and distinct districts of Meknes- such as the bustling Ville Nouvelle (new city), labyrinthine Medina (medieval city), and relaxing plazas and green spaces- speak true to the diversity of Morocco. With its myriad opportunities for exploration, Meknes provides an ideal setting for study abroad.

What Our Students are Saying
"Morocco is a wonderful place for many different kinds of people. I chose to study in Meknes because I wanted to experience life that was vastly different from the one I grew up in- not necessarily in the sense of money or food, but in culture and lifestyle. What I found here was a culture that I enjoyed and wanted to immerse myself in, but also had issues that I fundamentally disagreed with. That was the most valuable part of my study abroad experience: learning that life can exist in many different ways, that there are problems in every society, and that it's important not to judge a culture from within the confines of your own."
Alexandra L.University of Massachusetts, Amherst
"If you are interested in Arabic language, Islamic culture, and good food, then hands down go to Morocco! This program is so great and I had a blast touring the country, speaking the language, and being immersed in the culture! One of the best decisions I have made!"
Ben L. Elon University
"Studying abroad through ISA gives you the best of both worlds; you have the freedom and independence to move around on your own and explore the country at your leisure, but you also have a friendly, dedicated support system to help you navigate the new culture and get the most out of your time abroad."
Jasmine G.University of South Florida
"I knew I wanted to study abroad, and I'm so thankful I found ISA. Between the ISA Resident Directors, my fellow students, the locals, and my homestay family, I could not have asked for a better experience. My five weeks in Meknes flew by, and I hope someday I'll be able to go back!"
Logan T.University of Michigan
"Morocco is the only country where you could be on top of North Africa the same day you got lost in a medina and went swimming at a beach! Morocco really makes you ask, 'what adventure's next'?"
Matthew C.Rollins College
"I had an amazing time in Morocco! I learned so much about the culture, and created bonds that will last the rest of my life. I will never forget my time here and will take a piece of Morocco with me forever."
