    Exchange Programs

    These programs are those in which a student is directly enrolled in a foreign university that USF has a signed agreement. Students will take classes with local students. On-site support ranged from very dynamic to basic depending on the institution, however all institutions have close relationships with USF and will provide support to any student who enrolls at their university. These experiences should be explored by students who are a bit more independent and excited to explore a new city with locals. Students who participate in exchange programs will pay their regular tuition at USF, and room and board to the host institution. All universities offer courses in English as well as the native language of the country. Please click the links below to learn more about the exchange programs available in each locations.
