Frequently Asked Questions

+ What are the requirements to study abroad with YFU?

  • Age: Usually, students need to be between 15 and 18 while on program. However, certain countries will accept overage or underage students on a case by case basis, and we offer some special programs for 18-26 year olds.
  • GPA: For year or semester programs, we require a 3.0 GPA or better. For summer programs, the GPA requirement is 2.0 or better.
  • Students who are open-minded, interested in other cultures and becoming a global citizen, and willing to take on new challenges.

+ Do you have financial aid?

  • We offer 200 merit-based scholarships. Your family’s ability to pay program tuition will not affect your chances of winning a scholarship. To learn more about these, you may visit our scholarship page.
  • In addition to our merit-based scholarship awards, limited needs-based financial aid is also available to enrolled YFU students.
  • Fundraising: Many of our students are able to fundraise a portion (or sometimes all!) of their program tuition. Check out our fundraising page.

+ Do I need a visa? How do I get it?

  • If you are going for a semester or year-long program, you will need to get a visa or residence permit. You can find information about this process on consulate and embassy websites for your host country.
  • If you are accepted into the program, you will receive more information on how to obtain your visa.

+ I don't meet the age requirements. Can I still study abroad?

  • Yes! Many of our country partners will consider overage or underage students on a case by case basis. If you want to ask about your specific situation, please call 1.800.TEENAGE to speak with an Admissions Counselor.
