Coronavirus Update

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a newly identified coronavirus that is causing an outbreak of pneumonia illness. It was first identified in December 2019 in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Since then, the virus has been identified in multiple other countries, including cases in the United States. There are no cases at Fairfield University or Fairfield Prep.

The University is closely monitoring this rapidly changing situation and this page will be updated as additional guidance becomes available from public health officials and others.

Study Abroad With Fairfield University

The study abroad programs at Fairfield can take you many different places on earth, but they’ll all take you beyond your expectations. You’ll be exposed to a wealth of learning opportunities.

Study language in Florence, Italy or Aix-en-Provence, France; business in Brisbane, Australia or Barcelona, Spain; psychology or theater in London, England, or a subject of your choice at one of our many overseas partner universities. And discover what a completely different culture can teach you about your own.

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

At these Center locations, students will earn Fairfield University credit in Brisbane or Sydney, Australia; Aix-en-Provence, France; Galway, Ireland; Florence, Italy; Madrid or Barcelona, Spain; and London, England. In addition, summer, January intersession and faculty-led programs are open to students of all levels (first-year to seniors) which also earn Farifield credit. You can always make study abroad work with your schedule.

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. Students should research how the credits transfer for these programs.
