Go on a Global Exchange in 2018

We’re well into January, the time when people set their intentions for the new year. If having an international experience was on your list of 2018 resolutions, consider going on an FSU Global Exchange.

Applications for participating in a Global Exchange over the summer, next fall, or for the next academic year are due March 1. Applications can take up to a month to complete, so now is the perfect time to attend an info session and learn about our 40+ exchange options in more than 20 different countries.

Students can attend information sessions this semester on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 2 p.m. in The Globe (GME Building) room 2300.
