Exchange Program
Semester / Year-long 

Program Overview

Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity to earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subjects abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local and other international students, gaining a truly enriching experience and in-depth cultural immersion for one to two semesters.

Exchange programs are the most competitive and students are encouraged to begin the application process early to better focus on their personal statement and gather the needed recommendations.

Location

Situated in the west of Britain, Wales is a country of green and picturesque landscapes, and has one of the oldest cultures in Europe. Bounded by three seas and marked by a variety of coastlines, the land is largely mountainous.

Ironically, the history of struggle against invaders left Wales with its most priceless treasure, more castles per square mile than any other country in Western Europe. Enriched with a fascinating history and strong industrial heritage, the South Wales region has much to offer.
