Study Abroad

Fredonia's study abroad offers you the opportunity to see the world! Study abroad is one of the most rewarding experiences you will have in college.

Update on COVID-19: SUNY has cancelled all outgoing study abroad programs for Summer 2020. All summer program costs will be refunded to student applicants of Fredonia programs. Students studying on SUNY programs in Spring 2020 have returned or are in the process of returning home. The Office of International Education remains committed to assisting students find alternative credits and continue online coursework from partners abroad.

At this time, Fall 2020 programs are still planned to move forward. OIE will continue to monitor the situation with SUNY, Fredonia administration, and partners abroad.

Not only does studying abroad allow you to live in a new culture and get outside your comfort zone, you’ll learn cultural and interpersonal skills that are in high demand in this modernized global society.

There are a number of programs for students from first year to graduate level. Any student can study abroad with good planning, no matter their major, budget, time frame, or desired location.  As a Fredonia student, you are able to study on any SUNY program-- and there are more than 1,100 programs to choose from!
