Education & Exchanges


The Office of Public Affairs of the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania serves as a resource for Tanzanians and the general public in Tanzania to acquire current and accurate information about the United States of America. Students and parents can find out about studying in the United States through the Educational Advising Center and U.S. exchange programs section. To find out what is happening at the U.S. Embassy and in the United States, reporters and members of the public may contact the media section. Students, researchers, professionals and members of the public use our Information Resource Center to access further information on matters of interest to them, as well as borrow books and other media. Anyone may contact our cultural section about cultural programs available at the U.S. Embassy and find out about those open to the public.

Please feel free to check out the in-depth information on each of these sections, and contact us on drs_exchanges@state.gov with any questions.
