The primary purpose of study abroad programs is to improve the linguistic and cultural proficiency of the UCF students. Study abroad is not just for foreign language majors. UCF has programs designed to meet the general education and language requirements of all students as well as programs designed for majors within every college. The benefits of participation in a study abroad program transcend the course content. UCF has summer programs in Australia, Austria, Costa Rica, Croatia, France, Germany, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. UCF faculty and students also participate in other State University System programs as well as Non Florida SUS programs.
