Charting Your Journey
Things to consider in planning where to study:
Narrow possibilities by geographic location, i.e. a region like Europe or South America
If possible narrow by country of interest
Identify any specific academics of interest – i.e. your major, minor, gen eds, elective courses, or languages.
Review our Program Choices page to learn more about what's possible
Deciding when to study, consider:
Fall or Spring Semester
Full Academic Year
Winter Session / January Term
Faculty-led study tours (short-term, usually offered during the summer, winter, or spring break)
Other things to consider:
Attend a Study Abroad Information Session to learn more about the process
Talk to your academic advisor about courses within your degree that you could consider taking abroad; courses like general education requirements and electives within your major/minor are oftentimes the courses that can most easily be satisfied internationally
Make an appointment with the FSU Office of International Programs as early as possible in your college career to begin the conversation
