Why Choose an Exchange

Affordable  FSU Global Exchanges are an affordable way to have a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. Students pay FSU tuition and fees and can use their financial aid. Tuition and fees are waived at the host university, with all academic credit earned at the host institution transferred back to meet FSU degree requirements.
Immersive  FSU Global Exchanges provide an immersive study experience at a host university. Courses are taught in English, with the exception of language learning courses. Students attend classes with other international exchange student from around the world and with local students, making life-long friendships and connections.
Global Skills  FSU Global Exchanges allow students to work toward their degree while developing intercultural skills that distinguish them from their peers. An immersive international experience can help demonstrate to future employers and graduate schools that you are prepared to work in today’s global society.

Fulfil Academic Requirements  While on an exchange, students can complete the Formative Experience Liberal Studies requirement by taking the Global Exchanges Formative Experience course. The 0-credit hour, pass/fail course allows students to make the most of their exchange through reflection activities about the development of their intercultural skills and  knowledge as well as their own personal and academic development as a result of the exchange.
Earn Recognition  FSU Global Exchanges count toward FSU’s Global Citizenship Certificate and the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society, allowing students to earn a transcript notation for an academic certificate (GCC) and a medal and transcript notation for being inducted into the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society.
