COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Impact on Study Away
Furman's international faculty-led study away opportunities have been cancelled for 2021-2022. Furman encourages students to apply for a study away program with an affiliated partner. We are in the process of adding new affiliate opportunities to meet the anticipated demand. Read more about Furman University's coronavirus updates.
Furman offers a variety of study away programs for our students. Students can participate in semester, MayX or Summer programs. To explore our program options, visit "Application Portal".
