Pursue your Academic and Personal Goals
Choose a core course from 25 academic programs and select from over 250 upper-level elective courses. Your freedom of choice extends to your housing, where you apply for living arrangements that best fit you.

Academic Excellence
Intellectually stimulating courses challenge you to examine issues from various perspectives, as you debate, play, research, analyze, and reflect on contemporary topics and burning issues. 

Experiential Learning
With an emphasis on hands-on learning experiences, you have opportunities to simulate real-life scenarios, make connections, and build your resume. 

Europe as Your Classroom
Take your classroom on the road with two course-integrated, faculty-led study tours with your core course! Visit important sites and meet with local experts who add cultural perspectives to your knowledge of the field. 

Faculty Who Teach What They Do
Most faculty work as professionals in the areas they teach, bringing theory to life by sharing real-world examples in the classroom. 

Supportive Environment
Academic counseling and personal support resources are available to you during your time abroad, providing you a solid foundation upon which to grow.

Cultural Learning
In your courses, you focus on the importance of cultural context and are exposed to how issues are perceived, lived, and theorized in Europe. It is also your chance to reflect on the cultural norms and values that shape you.

Meet the Locals
Living in a Homestay, signing up for a sports team, taking a Danish Language and Culture course, or attending evening seminar are among the ways to build your international network and meet the locals. 
 



Furman Financial Aid

Furman students are eligible to apply Federal and State Aid and Institutional Scholarships towards the cost of the program and must complete a Consortium Agreement in order to have their aid applied toward the semester cost of the study abroad program. 
 

Furman's Application Process

Submit a study away application to Furman University by Furman’s application deadline. Applicants will meet with a representative from the Study Away office for an interview. Students for whom the program is a good fit will be accepted and pre-approved to apply directly to the program. Furman will send the affiliate program a list of names of students who are pre-approved. Once accepted by Furman, students will apply directly to the affiliate program.

Once accepted by the affiliate program, students must submit a Transfer Credit Authorization Form to the Registrar at Furman in order to be pre-approved to receive credit for classes taken abroad.  Please contact the Registrar at Furman if you have questions related to the form.

Furman Billing

To commit to a program, students will pay a $500 non-refundable deposit to Furman within 2 weeks of acceptance. This deposit is put toward the total cost of the program. Furman will bill students for Furman’s tuition, room, and board, plus a $250 administrative fee approximately two months before the program starts.
