Take advantage of Fairleigh Dickinson University's Global Partnerships! Full-time students from all majors, in good standing are welcome to apply for a semester at one of our Global Partner Institutions. Spend a semester in France, Germany, Thailand, or even Mexico. For a full list of partners, please visit the Global Partnership homepage here. If you do not see your country of interest let us know.
Students must complete the FDU, Global Partner Semester application before applying to the partner institution. Please speak with a study abroad advisor for details on how to apply to the partner institution.
Students will remain enrolled at their respective FDU campus and pay the same tuition and fees as a regular full-time semester.
If not already enrolled, students will be required to purchase the FDU sponsored health insurance for the duration of their time abroad. Details can be found at www.firststudent.com.
All FDU students electing to spend a semester at an FDU Global Partner remain eligible for the same financial assistance they receive in the United States. This includes federal aid (i.e., Pell Grants, student loans), state aid (i.e., TAG) and FDU grants and scholarships.
Once accepted, students will arrange housing with the partner institution. It is a student’s responsibility to secure and pay for their semester housing. The Study Abroad Office is available to help guide the student in the decision making process.
Courses and Credit Transfer
All courses must be approved by an approved academic advisor before departure. All credits will be entered as FDU credits upon completion. Students will receive a grade for each course.
DO NOT MAKE ANY TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM THE STUDY ABROAD OFFICE
