First- and Second-Year
Study Abroad Experience

Students are not able to participate in both FYSAE & SYSAE but do not need to choose which one you prefer until you deposit.

Explore. Engage. Be Inspired.

Arcadia's First-Year Study Abroad Experience (FYSAE) allows you to study in London, England during the spring semester of your first year, while our Second-Year Study Abroad Experience (SYSAE) encourages you to explore Perugia, Granada, London, or Philadelphia during the fall semester of your sophomore year.

  • Take courses that help you understand and connect with your location.
  • Receive extensive support and advising from in-country staff.
  • Benefit from opportunities to tie your academic work to hands-on experiences.
  • Venture beyond the classroom through activities and excursions with your peers.
“I learned how to navigate a large city, and I traveled to places that I never would have dreamed of visiting. FYSAE was a leap into the deep end, and it encouraged me to step outside the box and delve into new cultures. I would not trade my experience for the world.”
