Study Abroad with UNF

Anyone can study abroad. You can study abroad in any major, at any time during your time at UNF, and you can study abroad just about anywhere you would like. You can even study abroad multiple times. The UNF International Center will help you explore your options so you can make your best choice when it comes to studying abroad.

UNF offers a variety of types of programs including UNF Exchanges, UNF Faculty Led, and Other Opportunities Abroad.

UNF continues to rank among the top 20 universities nationwide for the total number of study abroad students in our Carnegie Classification. UNF was 15th in the nation in 2015-16 for total number of study abroad students among master's institutions, according to Open Doors 2017, the latest annual report in international education published by the Institute of International Education with funding from the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. In the "Short-Term" study abroad duration category, UNF ranks #10 in the nation among master's institutions.

  • Reasons to Study Abroad
    • Studying abroad can be the highlight of your time at UNF. Study abroad is an opportunity to experience a new culture, experience a different style of education, make new friends, discover new interests and see the world.
    • Although knowing another language is certainly not a requirement, studying abroad gives you an opportunity to learn and practice another language.
    • We work with you and your Academic Advisors to find coursework that works towards your degree.
    • We work with you and your Financial Aid Advisor to use your existing Financial Aid package and find new scholarships to help make your study abroad possible.
    • Study abroad looks great to future employers and graduate schools.
  • Information Sessions & Workshops
    Throughout the year the International Center hosts Information Sessions and Workshops about different aspects of studying abroad and international happenings on campus. Check our News & Upcoming Events page frequently for the most up to date event information.
