First Year International

The FYP&LC office First Year International (FYI) program provides UConn students with an opportunity to explore the world through faculty-led global field study courses. FYI trips provide an opportunity for first year students to investigate the study abroad experience by way of 4-6 week programs which occur during intersessions (winter or summer). FYI is a unique inter-departmental endeavor focusing on connecting first- and second-year students 1-on-1 with research faculty on the global scene. All UConn students may apply! All trips are sponsored by UConn Education Abroad. For full information on studying abroad and to apply, visit
