Florida State University written on a gate on the way into the campus

Florida State University is an internationally recognized teaching and research institution classified as a “Research University with Very High Research” by the Carnegie Foundation. Some of the most popular Colleges are Arts and Sciences, Business, Social Sciences, Education, and Human Science. Previous students have had the opportunity to work alongside Nobel laureates and Pulitzer-Prize winners, Guggenheim Fellows, and other globally recognized teachers and researchers. The University offers a 120,000 square foot Student Recreation Centre located right in the heart of campus, with over 100 free, weekly group fitness classes offered along with NSCA-certified personal training. This facility includes three regulation-size basketball courts, swimming pool, and a complete spa area equipped with whirlpools, steam rooms and a sauna. If that doesn’t leave you feeling too relaxed spend your extra time watching the garnet and gold FSU colours, worn by the “Florida State Seminoles” intercollegiate sports teams. In their 113-year history, Florida State's varsity sports teams have won 20 national athletic championships and Seminole athletes have won 78 individual NCAA national championships. Whether you’re taking your friends bowling at Crenshaw Lanes, watching a film at the Student Life Cinema or reading and writing for the campus newspaper, your time at FSU is sure to be memorable.

It will not be possible to complete a year abroad at this University if you have any assessments, such as supplementary or deferred exams, during the August assessment period at Swansea University.
