Our Summer Exchange Programs give UNF students more opportunities to study abroad during the summer. These programs, listed below, differ from Coggin In programs in that there is no faculty liaison who travels with students, there are no pre-departure meetings before travel, and there is not a large group of UNF students attending (in fact, there may be only one or two per program!). Students can choose to participate in these along with a Coggin In program for more time abroad as well as an Osprey Discount ($1,500 if the programs are on the same continent). These programs involve choosing your own courses and are much more independent and flexible than the Coggin In summer programs.
