Why First-Year Semester Abroad at Georgia Tech-Lorraine?

Did you dream of starting your first year of college at Georgia Tech? Maybe you pictured yourself hurrying from class to class on Tech’s large, beautiful, urban campus in Atlanta?

What if your first year didn’t start this way?

  • What if you got a taste of Georgia Tech in the Summer, where you would start mastering the tools you’d need to add an international dimension to your college career?
  • What if you spent your first Fall semester at Georgia Tech-Lorraine, Tech’s European campus in historic Metz, France?

With Georgia Tech’s First-Year Semester Abroad track, you’ll gain intercultural sensitivity skills and global perspectives that will frame the rest of your college and life-long learning experiences.

You’ll bond with a like-minded, globally adventurous cohort. Only 50 lucky students will get the opportunity to immerse themselves in French culture and enhance their language skills through group travels across Europe.

What would it look like if you spent your first Fall semester at Georgia Tech-Lorraine?

You won’t be able to yell, “Go, Jackets!” at Bobby Dodd Stadium…. but you will get to cheer on FC Metz, the local soccer team.

You’ll launch your Fall studies with a small cohort on the compact Lorraine campus…. Instead of getting lost in the crowd on the large Atlanta campus.

You might not have as many course offerings at Georgia Tech-Lorraine.… but you will enjoy the small class sizes and easy access to faculty.
