Study Abroad with Fairfield University

Study Abroad - Creating Pathways that Reflect Well on Your Major Course of Study

An international experience has become an invaluable part of a undergraduate education, and at Fairfield University, students are invited to study abroad at one of our seven dynamic programs abroad:  

Students can earn Fairfield University credit in Brisbane, Australia; Sydney, Australia; Aix-en-Provence, France; Galway, Ireland; Florence, Italy; Madrid, Spain; Barcelona, Spain; Managua, Nicaragua and London, England. In addition, summer and January intersessions and faculty-led programs are open to students of all levels (first-year to seniors). You can always make study abroad work with your schedule.

Coursework at these Centers successfully compliments and supplements students majors and minors. Another unique component of these programs is the capacity to be engaged beyond the classroom through service projects, field learning, for-credit internships and facilitated cultural engagement. We are pleased to work with the following institutions as our strategic partners abroad.

Our study abroad programs provide students with an international education that inspires intercultural awareness and prepares them for responsible roles in the global community.

In addition, Fairfield University partners with a select group of university and provider programs. Open to Fairfield Students, these programs were selected for their academic compatibility and geographic locations.
