Through the program, students embark on a journey of intellectual exchange, engaging with diverse perspectives and building a global network of colleagues and friends. They are exposed to a wide range of cultural practices, traditions, and perspectives, which broadens their horizons and allows them to see the world from a different lens.
The Edu-Odyssey program aims to create a space where students can develop their intellectual curiosity, expand their skill sets, and challenge themselves in new and meaningful ways. It encourages students to step outside their comfort zones, take risks, and embrace new experiences.

At the core of Edu-Odyssey is a commitment to experiential learning, which allows students to apply their knowledge and skills in real-world settings.

By engaging with local communities and working alongside professionals in their respective fields, students gain valuable insights into different cultures, perspectives, and ways of thinking.
Overall, the Edu-Odyssey study abroad program offers a unique and unparalleled learning experience that prepares students to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and globalized world. It is a program that instills a deep appreciation for cultural diversity, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of purpose and direction that will serve students well throughout their academic and professional careers.
Students will be awarded a transcript from Edu-Odyssey, and can be awarded credits from Fitchburg State University. Each course is 3 credits and up to 6 credits can be taken in a 3 week period. For gap year, non-credit and continuing education students, a certificate of completion will be presented.
In addition to enhancing one's professional credentials, study abroad experience provides a unique opportunity for personal growth and enrichment. Living and studying in a foreign country exposes students to new ways of thinking, diverse perspectives, and unfamiliar cultures. These personal benefits can enrich one's life in many ways and prepare them for success in both their personal and professional endeavors. Edu-Odyssey provides students with a global network they can turn to when looking for future recommendations and references, and to welcome individuals when they return to their host countries down the line. We also provide guidance for students who are seeking employment or futher studies abroad.
