Study Abroad - Getting Started

Where Will Your Education Take You?

Wel­come to a world of oppor­tu­ni­ties.

Join the nearly 200 FSU stu­dents who stud­ied abroad last year. Their pro­grams lasted from a week to a full aca­d­e­mic year. You’ll gain new friends, have expe­ri­ences you can’t have in Framingham, and gain new perspectives on your major and your career.

Studying abroad helps you define your goals and focuses your attention. It’s also a great career boost, as employers are looking for recent grads who have leadership skills and experience working with people from other cultures.

If you have not already browsed our Programs list and our Spotlight Program options, you can begin there, by narrowing down options of where and when you want to go. Or take a look at the Pre-Departure Handbook if you have already decided to go abroad. 

Global Ambassadors

When you study abroad, you help promote academic and cultural exchange, and global understanding at Framingham State University. Our extensive study abroad options and financial support will allow you to meet your goals.

An international experience can also be participation in an international service-learning program, led by a Framingham faculty member or through an affiliated program provider.

Look through our program offerings or you can set up an appointment with the OIE.
