International Student Exchange
With the International Student Exchange (ISE) Program, you can attend any one of our partner schools throughout the world. The ISE offers you true immersion, since you’ll be living and studying in your host country for the Fall or Spring semester, or both! You pay your FIU tuition for ISE, which means any scholarships or financial aid that you receive can go towards your study abroad experience. To learn more, visit International Student Exchange.

Other Study Abroad Opportunities
Students can choose to participate in a non-FIU or outside study abroad program. These third-party programs are not offered by FIU. It could mean direct enrolling in a foreign institution, participating in a program through a different US university, or participating in a 3rd party provider program. If you are interested in participating in a third-party program, you must apply through the Office of Study Abroad to have your program reviewed for approval to count here at FIU. For additional information, click here. Options include:
Earn an undergraduate degree in Hospitality Management and get a global experience in Tianjin, China. Students in China follow the same curriculum taught in U.S. classrooms. The Marriott Tianjin China Program is available in the fall and spring semesters.

Study abroad participants may earn A Hospitality Education Abroad Designation (AHEAD) by completing at least nine (9) credits during one or more Chaplin School study abroad programs.
