They are offered for 1-6 weeks during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Students travel as a cohort with FAU professors and have a short-term immersion experience. Destinations and coursework vary by the year.

EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

FAU has exchange partners around the world. We send domestic ֱ abroad and welcome international ֱ for study abroad experiences at FAU! Exchange programs are offered during the fall and spring semester (2-12 week summer options are available on a limited basis) and allow ֱ to enroll in a host institution abroad. Though ֱ participate in coursework at the host institution, they are pre-approved for coursework and registered at FAU.

DIRECT ENROLL PARTNER PROGRAMS

FAU partners with various institutions around the world to offer additional semester and summer program options! Our direct enroll partners include foreign universities or study abroad schools specifically oriented towards incoming international ֱ. For direct enroll partner programs, ֱ enroll, register, and pay as international ֱ at the host institution. Coursework is offered in English or the local language, and courses are pre-approved and applied as transfer work upon successful completion.

THIRD-PARTY PROGRAM PROVIDERS

Once ֱ have reviewed FAU study abroad options, they may consider applying to a third-party program, which includes but is not limited to study abroad providers, other U.S. college/university study abroad programs, or a foreign institution abroad with whom FAU is not a direct enroll partner. FAU is committed to supporting all ֱ in achieving their study abroad goals and provides support services for these options as well. If a student is interested in having coursework pre-approved for transfer credit at FAU, we will do our best to get courses pre-approved. It will be the responsibility of the student to collect course syllabi from the program provider. If a student wishes to access federal financial aid options, then a FAU Financial Aid Consortium Agreement will need to be completed.
