Spend Your First-Year Fall Abroad!
Accelerate your journey to global citizenship with Georgia Tech’s First-Year Fall Abroad (FYFA) Program! This innovative program leverages Georgia Tech’s global campuses and programs to provide a high-quality, experiential learning opportunity for incoming first-year students who wish to internationalize their college career right from the start. Begin your studies at Georgia Tech with summer session in Atlanta (as part of iGniTe). Next, head abroad for your first fall semester at one of two options: FYFA @ GTL, which leverages Georgia Tech’s European Campus in Metz, France and FYFA @ Oxford, where you will study and live at one of the Colleges of the University of Oxford in England and then continue your coursework as you travel throughout continental Europe. While abroad, your classes will all be GT courses, taught in English, and earn credits towards your GT degree. Finish the year with spring semester back on the Atlanta campus. Each program is selective, with enrollment limited to 50 students to ensure a high degree of student-faculty interaction.
