Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Faculty-led study abroad programs offer the best of both worlds: on-campus classes at UNF plus an dimmers experience abroad with your classmates and professor. Consider a faculty-led program to explore a particular business discipline from a different perspective while earning three credits toward your degree.  These are great opportunities for students going abroad for the first time and/or students with obligations at home that make spending a summer or semester abroad more challenging. 

Contact us for more information or visit us in Coggin College of Business (Bldg. 42), Room 1104.

Applications for 2025 programs will be open August 26 - December 13, 2024 (or until full).

Cost and Payment Information

Each faculty-led study abroad has costs associated with the services that are part of the program, such as student lodging, airfare, business/cultural visits, entry fees, international health insurance, t-shirts, etc. In most cases*, students pay the entire cost to UNF as two types of payments: (1) tuition and fees, which are due during the regular semester payment deadlines, and (2) program fee, which is due by the time specified by your faculty leader and the UNF International Center. International Business/Coggin Study Abroad recommends students begin saving and researching sources of funding as early as possible.  For questions about program fee costs and payments, students should contact their faculty leader or the UNF International Center.

*Students participating in the IPADE Mexico program or the EBS Paris program pay tuition/fees to UNF, but make payments for other services directly to those providers (e.g., flight payments to airlines, lodging payments to hotels or apartments, etc.).
