Special Notice: Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 Programs

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, Fairfield has made the difficult decision to suspend the Fall 2020 study abroad term.  We will be in touch with students who were committed to a Fall abroad experience individually in the coming weeks, at which time details about deposit, academic needs, application deferment and next steps will be discussed.
Global Fairfield and our partners abroad are working to assess the Spring 2021 term options and placement availability. Our priority is to provide you with an optimal global experience.  We know how much a term abroad means to our students and greatly appreciate your understanding and patience during this process.  We look forward to being in touch with you soon to discuss your Spring 2021 plan.
  Together we will pull through this difficult time and continue our goal to shape tomorrow’s global leaders.

** If you are a Non-Fairfield student from another University interested in studying abroad at one of our Center Programs for Spring 2021, please email for more information

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.

Parent Tips

We encourage your son or daughter to consider the many choices Fairfield offers to spend a semester, year, month, or just a week abroad earning academic credit and gaining the kind of knowledge only an onsite experience can provide. Information regarding admissions policies, program cost, withdrawal and program cancellation, code of conduct, health and safety abroad, disability support, and FERPA can be found in this section.
