Where Will Your Education Take You?

Wel­come to a world of oppor­tu­ni­ties!

Join the community of FSU stu­dents who stud­y abroad each year. Some people go on programs that last one week, others on programs that last a full academic year! No matter where you go, you’ll gain new friends, have expe­ri­ences you can’t have in Massachusetts, and gain new perspectives and cross-cultural understanding that will impact the trajectory of your life.

Study abroad is affordable and your financial aid transfers to cover the costs. Study abroad is possible for students in every major and your courses will be pre-approved before you leave to count towards your degree requirements at FSU. This type of international experience will help you cultivate independence, confidence, and intercultural skills which will enhance the value of your education and expand your future career possibilities. The FSU Office of International Programs where your international academic experience begins! 

“Nothing, above all, is comparable to the new life that a reflective person experiences when he observes a new country. Though I am still always myself, I believe I have been changed to the very marrow of my bones.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1786
