Why study in Wilkes-Barre?

Wilkes-Barre is a former coal-mining town located in Pennsylvania, US. Top-quality colleges, a lively cultural scene, and natural beauty come together to create a magical study abroad destination.

Nestled in the Wyoming Valley and stretched along the Susquehanna River, Wilkes-Barre is an outdoor paradise. Spend your free time chasing waterfalls, whitewater rafting, or kayaking. Each year, the city’s fine arts fiesta welcomes the best local musicians, food vendors, and craftspeople.

Thanks to its location in the eastern United States, Wilkes-barre is close to several iconic cities. New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and Baltimore are all great options for weekend road trips. If you want to fly home during vacations, you’ll find five international airports within 150 miles.
