Florida State’s Gateway Program allows students to spend the first year of their undergraduate
degree at one of our four international campuses and then transfer to the United States to earn
the remainder of their degree at our main campus in Tallahassee, Florida. During the first year,
students take classes from within a broad Liberal Arts curriculum – exploring a broad area of
academic interests – prior to focusing on a final choice of major such as business, history,
politics, or any one of the more than ninety degrees offered at our university. Gateway
students also have the unique advantage of meeting and studying with American students with whom
they will share the same campus when continuing studies in the U.S.A. Transfer assistance will be
available both at the international centers and in Tallahassee, providing a smooth transition to
campus life here in the States. Click here

Florida State has study centers in London, England; Florence, Italy; Panama City, Republic of Panama;
and Valencia, Spain. Students enjoy the centers’ vast academic resources, exciting learning excursions,
and optional living accommodations. Each center is exquisite and unique to its location. They are headed
by directors who are native to the country, establish one-on-one relationships with students, and are
supported by staff who are devoted to providing a secure and nurturing learning atmosphere.
