The Program is Northeastern’s unique and innovative first-year experience. Rooted in Northeastern’s core belief that students should be engaged citizens of the world, The Program encourages participants to not only see the world, but also to experience it. students spend their first semester studying at one of our five sites in four international locations – Australia, England, Greece, Ireland: FIE @ DBS, or Ireland: UCD – and then transition back to Boston to continue their studies on the Northeastern University campus.

The Program provides a truly transformative experience to students who are ready for the challenge. As a result of their time abroad, alumni are adventurous, bold, ambitious, intellectually curious, reflective, and independent individuals who engage in their own learning. They share a passion for the world and thrive in their community. students are well-prepared for translating their knowledge into marketable assets throughout college and in the future.
