The majority of Georgia Tech's study abroad programs fit into one of three categories:
Faculty-Led Study Abroad(FLSA) programs are group programs which offer GT courses taught by GT professors. They typically run during the summer; exceptions are the Pacific Program (Spring), GT Lorraine Undergraduate Program (Fall/Spring). These programs offer a set list of courses and offer anywhere from 6-12 credits, depending on the program. Most programs are taught in English, except for the language intensive programs offered by Modern Languages. Ideal candidates for these programs meet minimum GPAs as set by the programs, are in good academic and disciplinary standing, are over 18 years of age, have completed at least two semesters of college, are outgoing and open to new social networks, are team players, and enjoy a structured environment.
Exchange and Study/Work Abroad programs allow a GT student to enroll at one of our partner universities around the world for one semester or academic year. (The work abroad portion of these programs is handled by GT's Work Abroad Office.) Students on exchange programs must enroll full-time and transfer foreign credits back to Georgia Tech (with approval from GT academic units). Students can generally choose courses from the entire host school's course catalog (although some exceptions may apply). Students are subject to the academic system and grading system of the host university. (A few summer exchange programs exist as well. Please see the GT Summer Programs section of this page for more information on summer exchanges.) Ideal candidates for exchange programs have at least a 3.0 GPA, are in good disciplinary standing, are over 18 years of age, have completed at least two semesters of college, are open-minded and flexible, and willing to push themselves beyond their comfort zone.
