Develop essential interdisciplinary skills abroad 

Designed with the needs of first- and second-year students in mind, these programs prepare students to thrive in college and beyond. Each established itinerary is interdisciplinary in nature, offering relevant learning opportunities across multiple majors. In addition to courses at international partner universities, all foundation programs include an EF-led course focused on developing future-ready competencies.

How they benefit students:

Direct enrollment allows students to travel with a diverse cohort of learners from across the country   

Intentional courses enhance higher-ed journeys and prepare students with career-ready skills   

Students return to their home universities with a semester’s worth of credit and global perspectives  

Intentional experiences

From accommodations to academic partnerships, every element of our Foundation Programs work together to provide students with enjoyable, engaging, and impactful study abroad experiences.
