Congratulations on your decision to study abroad!

International experience is one of the most important components of a 21st-century education. FIE understands that deciding on a study abroad program can be confusing, so we're here to help you determine the best fit for you. The following are some questions to consider as you research your options.

Do you attend an FIE partner institution?

FIE partners with universities across the US to offer study and study & internship programs. Visit the drop down menu on the front page of our application portal (MyStudyAbroad@FIE) to see if your school is listed and which programs your university offers through FIE.

If your university is not an FIE partner, discover what programs are available to you as an Independent Student.

Where do you want to study?

Interested in spending a summer or semester in the hustle and bustle of London, one of the world's busiest global cities? Or maybe the big village feel of Dublin, with rolling green hills and the sea just a stone's throw away, is more your pace. Perhaps the ancient temples, souks, and culture of the Middle East are calling you. FIE offers study and study & internship programs in some of the most exciting places in world!
